Strange Bedfellows-Future Turners ? *PIC*

>This is a baby Black Jaguar and a baby Wooly Monkey drinking milk out of the same syringe. Both are orphaned as the local indiginous peoples kill the mothers and sell the skins and the young to the illegeal animal trade. I dont think I will ever have an opportunity to take another photo of a pair like this. This is what makes it all worthwhile. The baby monkey is not a problem as she can be turned loose in the resort in 5 or 6 years when she is an adult and will act like the owner. The baby jaguar is more of a problem as once they are raised by humans they have no fear and cannot be let loose easily as they will walk up to a hunter and be shot. Thankfully "Animal Planet" the TV program is working with a group from Austrailia to make the zoo here civilized and be able to accept animals like this baby cat.
