San Antonio Zoo To Build Unique Jaguar Habitat

San Antonio Zoo
The San Antonio Zoo will need to raise more than $1 million to build a new jaguar habitat.

The next big exhibit at the San Antonio Zoo will be an expanded jaguar habitat.

The price tag is one to two million dollars.

The new display will be unique among American zoos, complete with a cat walk where the jaguars can stroll above visitors’ as they walk through the enclosures.

Jaguars in the wild often stroll in the canopies of trees in the Amazon rain forest.
