Richard and Claire, two baby Jaguars, met the press for the first time at the London Zoo on August 30. It was the first trip away from their mother for the two cubs, who were born on July 31. Richard and Claire were the first Jaguar cubs born at London Zoo since 1965. The two cubs left the safety of their mother and took up positions of a lawn at the zoo to pose for photographers and curious onlookers. Their father, Igor, was also British-bred. Jaguars usually breed every two or three years and the cubs are mature by the age of two. Jaguars are found in the tropical Americas and are the largest of the "New World" cats.
