There’s been a baby boom at the Dallas and Fort Worth Zoos. Earlier this month, both zoos announced animal births -- that's on top of several other animals born in recent months.

Meet the newest resident of the Fort Worth Zoo – Sasha, a female jaguar cub.

She was born July 16, although zoo officials just announced her arrival last week. She weighed in at 2 pounds and began bonding with her mommy – Xochi.

Xochi is rather protective. After giving birth, she cared for Sasha in a private area that mimics natural jaguar behavior in the wild, zoo officials said.
