    "We're thrilled to welcome these two new additions to Cat Country," said Matt Thompson, Chief Zoological Officer. "Not only are they adorable, they're an important big cat. Jaguar populations are on the decline in the wild and we are proud to be an institution focused so heavily on conservation and research efforts."

    The public will have the opportunity to participate in a naming contest for the cubs. Details about the contest will be released in the coming weeks. Currently, the cubs are not on exhibit but are behind the scenes nursing from mom and getting stronger each day. Memphis Zoo will provide regular updates on the cubs and will inform the public on when they will be on exhibit for everyone to see.
