Rosettes for Mom!

Jaguar Stella

Jaguars, found in the rainforests and grasslands of South America, are the largest cats in the Western Hemisphere and the third largest overall. Only lions and tigers are bigger. Their stunning tawny coat is covered with dark spots called rosettes, named after their rose-like shape. Their rosettes have an irregular broken border often with a spot in the center. They look a lot like leopards but leopard rosettes are unbroken with no spot in the center. The spotted coat helps camouflage the jaguar, breaking up their outline in forests or grasslands.

Get your mom rosettes this Mother’s Day instead of roses with a sponsorship of the Milwaukee County Zoo’s female jaguar, Stella. An animal sponsorship also makes a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries or any occasion! Hurry before this limited-time offer vanishes after July 31, 2020.

The $45 sponsorship package includes:

  • An adorable plush-toy jaguar
  • A colorful fact sheet about jaguars
  • A certificate of sponsorship
  • An invitation to a behind-the-scenes event for animal sponsors at the Zoo in August
  • Sponsor recognition on our “All in the Family” donor board for a year
  • A Sponsor an Animal decal

Upgrade your sponsorship to the $75 level to receive a photo of Stella and two Zoo attraction tickets in addition to the benefits listed above.

Send your gift anywhere in the continental United States. Shipping and handling included.
