Jay Leno Gets Bitten by a Baby Jaguar (VIDEO)

Jay Leno Gets Bitten by a Baby JaguarAnimal trainer Dave Salmoni was the guest on the new 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). And in the grand tradition of talk show hosts dealing with animals, host Jay Leno got into a little trouble with a baby jaguar.

Jay cradled the tiny feline in his arms -- then repeatedly got bitten on the chin by the three-month-old jaguar. To be fair, Leno's face is about 60 percent chin, so it'd be hard to bite him anywhere else. ... And yes, we have just officially "zinged" Jay Leno. Take that, Mr. Talk Show Host!

Dave Salmoni is Chelsea Handler's ex-boyfriend, so the conversation moved on to that topic. "And speaking of dealing with big cats," Jay said, "how are you and Chelsea Handler doing?" Dave replied that the relationship was officially over. "Couldn't handle that predator, could you?" the host quipped.

Salmoni then tried to get back to the original topic of discussion: "Let's talk about jaguars ... I can handle jaguars." True. But then, Chelsea is really more of a "cougar," so maybe that was the whole problem in the first place. See? We just zinged Chelsea too.

Next, the animal trainer brought out a baby tiger. The tiger was a "chuffer," and "chuffing" is basically the wild feline equivalent of purring -- it's a snorting noise that means the creature intends no harm. So Jay and the two-month-old kitty "chuffed" and snorted back and forth. It looked a little silly, but we're not going to do any zinging or make any jokes about it. Why? Because baby tigers are ADORABLE, that's why.

The cat is beautiful. Jay is ugly. So ugly that Webster's has decided to redefine ugly as: Jay Leno.

Serves him right. No one cares to see those stupid animal segments anyway. Maybe now he and Rachael Raye as well will stop them.

Get rid of the stupid Jay Leno Show and give us a great nature show! Something to stimulate your gray matter not liquify it!

Couldn't agree more, Benji. I was watching a TV show from the mid-1970s and a character said "No one goes to the HOSPITAL for a dog bite"!

How adorable, both Jay and the cubs! I love to watch him with the little ones because he seems so comfortable and at ease holding them and talking to them, not afraid of getting dirty or bit, lol! Keep it up Jay, your love of animals really shows, and people who love animals are generally good people!
