"Bella is a curious cat and has investigated everything in her surroundings. She has become comfortable quickly, resting on her back and rolling around playfully, as cats big and small do,” said Sue Tygielski, Director of Zoo Operations.
Bella comes from the Akron Zoo in Ohio.
Reid Park says she will serve as an ambassador for her species, raising awareness about the challenges jaguars face in the wild.
Guests can find her in the zoo's South America loop.
