In pics: Baby twin jaguar cubs!

Check out these super cute twin baby jaguars! But can you spot the difference?

One of the cubs is yellow fur and black spots, BUT the other has black fur and NO spots! It's quite rare for a cub to have no spots - which makes the new cub a special treat!

Zoo keepers think that the answer to the twins' odd fur is down to their parents, as they have a spotty dad and a not so spotty mum!

Jaguars are really good swimmers and like a dip to grab a tasty turtle. But this cub doesn't look like he's enjoying his wash from mum!

Jaguars are a nearly threatened species - that means the number of them in the wild is shrinking really quickly. These cubs are part of a programme trying to keep numbers up!
