The mother and the cubs are in an isolated maternity hospital, in the Roberto Ribas Lange Zoo located inside the refuge, which is being used as a reference for the reproduction of other animals such as the harpy, the tapir and the deer-bororó. The first attempt at breeding jaguars began 14 years ago with the Juma jaguar, however, if it was later discovered that she had infertility problems by her age, when Nena the Jaguar arrived if she expected reproduction to occur after a year, which happened well before this time.
