The cub’s parents, Kumal and Kedera, were first introduced 18 months ago and hit it off from the start and now mother and baby, who is still to be named, are doing well.

The special youngster and her mum will be kept out of view from the public for the next few months allowing them to bond.

ZSH Director, Lynn Whitnall, said: “We’re obviously all delighted at the news of the birth of our Jaguar cub.
