SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Zoo released the name of their new jaguar catwalk on Monday in a Facebook post.
The zoo said the name will be... *drum roll please*... Pantera Walk!
The zoo also said they were excited to release renderings of a new realm called NEOTROPICA which was said to be scheduled to be completed Fall 2021 along with the Pantera Walk.
NEOTROPICA will focus on regions of the Americas and include enhancements that stretch from Outpost Amazonia through the new jaguar habitat and other regional habitats, the post said.
The zoo said NEOTROPICA will create the feel of a remote fishing village with motifs characteristic of the Americas and nods to pre-Hispanic cultures.
In April, the zoo announced the creation of the then named, Jaguar Sky Walk. Staff at the zoo said it would be the first of its kind in an American zoo.
The two jaguars at the zoo, Arizona and B'alam, have been residents of the SA since they were cubs in September 2016. Their arrival was the first significant Jaguar birth for the zoo since 1974, according to zoo staff.
