Description:

The jaguar ranks after the lion and the tiger in size, making it the third largest cat in the world. In appearance, the jaguar greatly resembles the leopard, although it is larger and stockier in build, with a shorter tail. Another way to differentiate between the two species is by the pattern of the coat: the jaguar's markings consist of dark rings surrounding a lighter area containing several dark spots. As with leopards, there are also black jaguars.

In the wild, the easiest way to distinguish between the jaguar and the leopard is location. The jaguar lives in Central and South America. These cats prefer a dense rainforest habitat, such as is found in the Amazon Basin. They require a plentiful supply of fresh water.

Jaguars are good climbers, and will hunt monkeys through the trees. Jaguars can be active during the night and the day.

These cats are opportunistic feeders, and will eat whatever comes their way. A staple of their diet is the capybara, the world's largest rodent. They can also prey on such diverse creatures as alligators, armadillos, monkeys, cattle, and fish.

The jaguar emits a roar that sounds like a series of hoarse coughs. They also communicate with grunts and mews and use scent to mark their territories. Like most cats, jaguars are solitary creatures, and come together only to mate.

At the top of the food chain, jaguars have no real enemies other than man. Listed as endangered, there are approximately only 15,000 jaguars left in the wild, although numbers are difficult to verify. The jaguar is hunted for its fur, and is also killed by farmers fearing for the safety of their livestock. Another major threat to the jaguar is the habitat destruction resulting from deforestation.
