LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. -- Looking for some good family fun over spring break? Now's a perfect time to visit the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium in the west Valley.

The all-new 15-acre Safari Park is now open, and some animal babies are making their debuts! April Warnecke gave us a preview on Wednesday's Good Morning Arizona.

Her first furry guest stars? Baby jaguars.

"We have a male and female pair of jaguars," say Dr. Grey Stafford of Wildlife World Zoo. "They're about four weeks old today."

The jaguars will be on display in the baby nursery, along with some other cute faces, including a baby porcupine. A baby white lion is also on display for part of the day.

There's so much to see an do at the park, including an African safari train. "It takes you through six different yards here at the Safari Park," says Stafford. "And also, we have a lot of birds here at the Safari Park. Some new species, as well."
