An Introduction to the Tale
This is the heart-wrenching story of Jiquitaia, a jaguar cub that was abandoned by his mother in the Amazon jungle. Weak, inexperienced and vulnerable, it was extremely unlikely that he would survive for very long at all.
Luckily, the Brazilian military rescued him and nurtured him back to full health. But what happened next was the last thing anyone was expecting – and Jiquitaia’s story has become world-renowned.
