Adorable Animals at Local Animal Parks You Need to See Now

Fabulous Fitz!

How cool is this guy? Fitz, the fabulously named jaguar, arrived at Woodland Park Zoo this past December. With the zoo closed, he's spending extra time getting used to his new Seattle digs. Fitz came from the Houston Zoo.

According to his keepers, Fitz loves food, especially goat's milk, raw eggs and bones, but those are treats that supplement his regular daily diet. Woodland Park Zoo has another jaguar, 13-year-old Nayla, but she and Fitz won't be bunking together, as jaguars are solitary animals.

To support the zoo's conservation efforts for jaguars in the wild, consider "adopting" a jaguar through the ZooParent program. (Though note you won't receive your kit until the zoo's closure ends.)

Once the zoo reopens, find Fitz in the Tropical Rain Forest. Hopefully, the zoo will reopen in time for Fitz's third birthday on July 20!
