I remember the name IxChel from when we were studying Mesoamerica! In my historical fiction I am best friends with a jaguar, not named IxChel though.

Lovely jaguars are lovely :lol: another great photo
Besides, I was trying to guess which one was the male and which the female. I think male is the one on our left, but heh, that's fifty-fifty =P (I'm so curios sometimes... :roll:)

You guessed right, he is about 1.5 to 2 times bigger than his female companion.

Oh wow. You must have been stoked to see jaguars. And multiple jaguars at that! :)
This is a swell shot! :)

You are absolutely spot on. And since we were going to New Orleans anyway, I took advantage of the fact that they have Jaguars there. Great zoo, by the way, although you don't normally go to NOLA for the zoo. Anyway, this is one out of 20 shots or so I took of these two, and maybe, I'll post one more.

Thanks very much :hug:

Yeah, I was there for more than an hour, and they were very affectionate with each other, and it was a pleasure to watch. I almost forgot about the photography, and the glass made it difficult to get decent shots. Anyway, I'd love to go back there, but since its 600 miles away, it won't be so soon.
