OC Zoo’s new large mammal exhibit officially opened to the public on May 13, marking the debut of four new animals. The new, 2-acre habitat represents the largest expansion project in the zoo’s history and now houses an adult mountain lion, three orphaned mountain lion cubs and an adult jaguar. The expansion was designed to offer guests an up-close look of the big cats while creating a comfortable and natural-looking environment for the felines. The new area includes artificial rock walls, climbing platforms, a waterfall and a bridge for the cats to cross overhead.
