The jaguar is listed as Near Threatened by the International Union for Conservation (IUCN).

The new jaguar exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, located in the Rainforest of the Americas habitat and opened to the public on May 22, features several glass viewing windows that allow visitors to get closer to the cats than ever before. The Zoo’s three jaguars (male Kaloa, female Johar [pictured above], and male Stewie) seem to be enjoying their new facilities.
