TULSA – One of the youngest additions to the Tulsa Zoo finally has a name, confirmed staff members.

Babette is the name of the little jaguar girl born this year. The name mirrors that of the little jungle cat’s recently deceased father, Bebeto.

Bebeto passed away in April due to age-related complications, say the Tulsa Zoo staff.
