If you can't wait for the NFL season to see popular San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo then head to the zoo. He's there.

Well, sort of.

The San Francisco Zoo has named its new snow leopard "Jimmy G," following its tradition of naming animal after athletes from Bay Area sports teams.

And heads up: The SF Zoo and Gardens is offering free admission to mothers who come to the zoo with their children on Mother's Day, this Sunday, May 13.
