Baby jaguar born at Jacksonville zoo

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - There's a new baby jaguar at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.

No word yet on the cub's name. Officials say they'll announce it when he's put on public display in another five weeks or so. The zoo auctioned off the right to name him.

The 7-week-old is the first jaguar to be born there in nearly 28 years. The first photos of the cub were taken last weekend when he had his first physical exam.

His birth brings the zoo's jaguar population to eight - the largest of any zoo in the country.
