Spotting a birthday bash


GREG GILBERT / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Yawning, one of three jaguar cubs turning a year old seems bored during a special birthday occasion at Woodland Park Zoo.

Woodland Park Zoo's three jaguar cubs turn 1 year old on Saturday. To celebrate the anniversary of the birth of sisters Inka and Arizona, and their brother, Kuwan, the zoo held a birthday party on Friday. Cardboard turtles and letters spelling out "Happy Birthday" were treated with curry spice to attract the cubs. The female cubs both weigh about 120 pounds. Kuwan weighs about 155 pounds. Fully grown, the cubs will weigh about 180 pounds. Jaguars can weigh as much as 350 pounds.
