Black jaguar introduced at Loro Parque
Those planning holidays
in Spain may be interested to learn that a new black jaguar has been successfully introduced at Loro Parque in Tenerife.
The nine-year-old female, which was brought to the island from a zoological park in Germany, was placed in an enclosure beside a yellow male jaguar that came to the attraction 13 years ago, before being released into his area.
According to Tenerife News, the pairing has been hugely successful, with the pair now proving inseparable.
"This elegant and brilliantly black panther has been named Negra and visitors will be able to see for themselves how well the two get on together," the publication noted.
One of Tenerife's most popular attractions, Loro Parque is also home to dozens of other species, including dolphins, orca whales, parrots, tigers, gorillas, alligators, penguins and sea lions, with entertaining shows taking place daily at the park.
