A jaguar stares into the lens. It was quite incredible to get so close to this beautiful animal in Belize Zoo. His name is Junior Buddy and he was rejected by his mother at birth and brought up in captivity. He is in good hands and has such a large enclosure that sometimes it's hard to spot him without the help of the handlers at the zoo.
Location: Belize Zoo, Western Highway, Belize District, Belize
