Unlikely Animals Friends

Bite For Bite
Nindiri, an adult female jaguar, sleeping. For their jaws relative to their size, they have the most powerful bite of the “big cats.”
Big Cat Naps
Orson is a male, melanistic jaguar, born on October 21, 1992. From the tip of its nose to the tip of its tail a jaguar can measure up to 6 feet in length and weigh as much as 250 pounds.
Lions are the most sociable cat and like these guys, will live in a family group called a pride. In the wild that might be up to 30 strong but at the San Diego Zoo, 3 is plenty.
