Jaguars prefer to hunt at night, with the cover of darkness. Not only does the darkness conceal her from the prey, hunting at night also gets around the problem of heat exhaustion, a problem for big cats that live in tropical climes.
aguars have jaws and a large head especially equipped for piecing the skull of their prey with their canines.
Jaguars prefer wet lowland habitats, swampy savannas or tropical rain forests.
Largest extant (living) cat of the Americas Extinct North American cats, Smilodon and Megantereon, were larger Size variation Smaller in equatorial regions and in dense forests, larger north and south of equator Likely influenced by the size of available prey Similar to leopards though larger Chest more deep Head more broad Paws larger Tail shorter
The jaguar lives 12 – 15 years In the wild.
The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas. The jaguar has a compact body, a broad head and powerful jaws. Its coat is normally yellow and tan, but the color can vary from reddish brown to black.

Jaguars mainly live a solitary live. The times when they do come into contact with each other are often mating and when they have young to care for. The female Jaguar is ready for mating when she is about 2 years of age. For the males it is later – usually around 3 or 4 years of age.

As a top-level carnivore, the big cat helps prevent overgrazing of vegetation by keeping its prey populations in balance.
At best, only an estimated 15,000 jaguars remain in the wild.
