The Belize Zoo sadly announces that our beloved black jaguar, Lucky Boy, has passed away. Our staff attended to him for over two weeks, providing care and constant medical attention. Unfortunately, his health steadily declined.
Lucky Boy was twenty years old and fought chronic health problems ever since his arrival to the Zoo in 2012. This stellar jaguar brought joy and happiness to the lives of many for well over four years. We are grateful to everyone around the world who were part of his amazing story..The Belize Zoo is committed to keeping his special spirit alive forever.
Lucky Boy, such a an incredible guy, is, and always will be, greatly missed.
