PHOENIX -- The Good Morning Arizona crew enjoyed a visit from some furry little guests this weekend.

Two baby jaguars from the Wildlife World Zoo came to the studio for an "awwww-inspiring"  TV appearance! The babies are just over eight weeks old.

"They're brother and sister," says Dr. Grey Stafford of Wildlife World Zoo.  "You notice one is black with black spots and one is yellow with black spots."

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.

They don't have names yet. But they are healthy and growing. "Now that they're eating meat, their growth rate is going to shoot up," says Stafford.
