Two jaguar cubs

The Belize Zoo used the historic occasion of it's 30th Anniversary to highlight a progressive education effort, the promotion of a book entitled, PAT THE GREAT CAT. Written by students from Belize and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the book features a jaguar named Pat who is a graduate of the zoo’s Problem Jaguar Rehabilitation Program. Once a cattle killer, Pat now lives happily in the Milwaukee Zoo with his mate, Stella. On the 13th of November, Pat and Stella became the proud parents of two jaguar cubs.

Names picked for zoo's baby jaguars


Stella, the mother, and her cub Zean rest together at the Milwaukee County Zoo during Zean's first day on public exhibit.

Meet B'alam and Zean, the newly named baby jaguars at Milwaukee County Zoo.

One of the names for the 4-month-old cubs was chosen from over 1,300 entries in a public contest, and the other was chosen by schoolchildren in Belize. The name B'alam, the Mayan word for jaguar meaning "great and powerful king," won the public contest, while the students in Belize chose the name Zean, the last few letters of "Belizean."

The Belizean schoolchildren previously co-authored a book with Milwaukee-area students called "Pat the Great Cat, A Jaguar's Journey," that tells the life story of the cubs' father. Pat is a wild-born jaguar from Belize.

The new zoo residents were born Nov. 13, the first litter for parents Stella and Pat and the only jaguars born at the zoo since 1975.

Visitors can see the baby jaguars from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
