Meet Max, short for Maximilian💙 he is going on five weeks of age. Born in a small zoo in Northern Florida, the mother raised him and his siblings. About a week ago it was noticed that he was being singled out and staying behind in weight and size compared to his two siblings. Therefore was taken in to be checked and hand reared. We were blessed to be able to adopt him two days later.He arrived two nights ago, got his physical, first vaccine and treated for parasites. He's an eager little guy who is on a feeding schedule and already has gained significant weight which indicates that he will be perfectly fine🐾

Vladim is now a young adult and he's stunning. Amur leopards are one of the most endangered species of the felines.There are only 57 known to be left in the wild🐾

This is Maya, Nadarr's mate❤
She is a black jaguar, which means she is not a different species, merely a melanistic color variant of the usual jaguar coat. Melanism is the result of a dominant allele and remains relatively rare in jaguars.
Fun fact - black panthers (as leopards can also be melanistic) still have their rosettes, they're just harder to see but when their coat catches the sunlight, they're clearly visible. You can see Maya's rosettes in this photo🐾 #jaguar #blackjaguar #melanistic #bigcat #conservation #zwfmiami #zwf #notpets #wildlife #nature

Nadarr is one of our four unrelated jaguars. As wild populations continue to rapidly diminish, we are fortunate to hopefully be able to be part of the efforts to save this magnificent species from extinction by producing totally unrelated bloodlines, which we can exchange with other conservation facilities without weakening the gene pool by inbreeding🐾
