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.

Chelsea Handler Is Single at 35 - and Is Thinking About Dating Black GuysWell, according to the news, Chelsea Handler is single again. On Wednesday, she announced that she had broken up with her latest boyfriend -- 'Animal Planet' host Dave Salmoni. Earlier this year, she dumped her previous boyfriend, Ted Harbert, CEO of the E!

Leno Buys Chelsea Handler a Horse on 'Tonight Show'There's one animal that absolutely terrifies Chelsea Handler: snakes. Jay Leno had just such a surprise for her when she visited 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). The comedienne was visibly unnerved, and countered with an insult. But they made up when Leno gave her a big present.

"I spoke to Dave [Salmoni] earlier today, and he sent these over for you," said Leno. At that, he pulled some snakes out from behind his desk. He held them out to her, completely unfazed.

Handler jumped, and appeared horrified. "No! Those are the gross ones!" she said, her voice quivering. "I'm going to vomit or go to the bathroom ... I don't like the skinny ones -- put it over there!" Once the host put them away, she said, "By the way, that's the manliest thing I've ever seen you do."

Despite the insult, Leno brought out a gift that would go perfectly in her home's empty stables. All was forgiven.

The Tonight Show, Jay Leno cuddles with a tigerWe always love it when large animals invade the set of 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Jay Leno's got some chutzpah to handle the big kitties, like he did on last night's show.

Still, it's gotta be a little nerve-wracking, knowing that even a 10-week-old tiger could rip his face off if she wanted to. Thankfully, she only seemed interested in cuddling, and handler Dave Salmoni was close by in case things got interesting.

Watch the video after the jump.
