Few days ago I heard sad news Iazua, one of two jaguar cubs born 27.12.2010, was moved to another zoo. Zookeepers in my home zoo said, she demonstrated her dominance, she was aggressive towards the mother and sister and zoo does not have enough place to keep them separated. Iazua was always more dominant and not so dependent on the mother as her sister Mayra and now she just grow up. I will miss her, but I think this decision ist the best for all.
Iazuas new home is fortunately about 3 hours from my home. So I hope I will visit her sometime.
no, I just visit various zoo as normal visitor ... it is good to go to zoo during work day or winter - then is there less visitors and animals are curious and often they come very close, sometimes too close
