The 'Limpopo' zoo in Nizhniy Novgorod, central Russia, unveiled two newborn rare black jaguars on Tuesday. Although the kittens were born only a month ago, their father already left their mother, Naomi, as the males only have contact with females during mating season. Nevertheless, Naomi is carrying out her parenting tasks successfully, feeding the kittens and taking them for walks. Black jaguars, also known as melanistic jaguars, are rarely found in the wild as their color is a result of a genetic mutation.
