I’ve been in awe of Nindiri from my first glimpse of her. A stunning beauty with plenty of attitude, she’s a little firecracker. But she also has a softer side. Watching her raise Tikal and Maderas born in 2012, and then Valerio born in 2015, I got to witness a whole new dimension to her personality. She was the most amazing mother - nurturing, playful, patient, and adorably silly! She taught them how to be jaguars and did it so very well, and I loved her even more! You’re a fascinating and fabulous creature, Nindiri! Happy 10th Birthday, to a very special girl!
