Looking into the eyes of a Jaguar

We are fortunate enough to live in a town that has a zoo. To be able to drive 10 minutes to visit and explore wild life anytime we want is priceless, more now with a little one. It's better than any playground around here. I have been going to the Stone zoo since I was very young. We'd see polar bears and elephants. Over the years the zoo has changed. There are less animals, but it is still a fun destination on a nice summer day. This year we got a membership so we are there more than ever. Of course the one time you go without a camera there was a great photo op with the jaguar (thank goodness Lianne had her trusty iPhone and was able to take some shots) The jaguars almost never come near the glass, they're always roaming about. But that day was different. The jaguar was laying nose to nose to the glass where you could just look into those eyes. Very Cool.

I'm not sure if it was Kanga or Pacal who was by the glass but we did realize later that they just had a new baby cub called Chessie –born on May 31st. So that could explain it..... it was pure exhaustion!

This is as close as Gryffin would get.
