HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Residents are lining up to catch a glimpse of a sleek black Jaguar at the Hattiesburg Zoo.

WDAM-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2gE27sM ) that Saturday was the first time that zoo-goers could get a look at the jaguar named Maya.

The feline is 13 years old and came to Hattiesburg from a zoo in Memphis.

Maya replaces a jaguar named Sampson who died last January.

Holly Phillips, who came to see the animal, called the jaguar “magnificent looking” and says she was excited to be able to see Maya on her first day.
