Jaugars By: chrissy f.

Whats the diet?

Jaguars eat; deer, peccary, crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, deer, sloths, tapirs, turtles, eggs, frogs, fish and anything else they can catch. The jaguar is the third-largest living feline species, after the tiger and lion.

Where they live

Jaguars are found on the American continents; they live in Texas, in the Cerro Colorado Mountains in Arizona, the southern part of California, and New Mexico, in the United States, and are found in rain forests in Central and South America. The largest known population exists in the Amazon rain forests. they live on the under-story and forest floor!

Endangered or not?

Jaguars are near threatened. because of habitat loss and over hunting have these rare cats on the run and listed as threatened or endangered nearly everywhere they call home. The situation is most dire in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, where they’ve been virtually wiped out in the United States, and only 70-100 animals are thought to survive in Sonora, Mexico.

Whats the weight?

Jaguars in Venezuela or Brazil are much larger with average weights of about 95 kg (220 lb) in males and of about 56 kilograms (123 lb) to 78 kilograms (172 lb) in females.

Who are the predators?

Jaguars live in many different habitats, though they are most often found in jungles and forests. Loss of the natural habitats has led to an increase in contact with humans, who kill jaguars for their furs, although this practice is not as common as it once was. The Rainforest Alliance states that there are now roughly only 15,000 jaguars left in the wild. Jaguars also hunt some of the same species as humans, furthering the danger of human contact.

Names for the jaguar

A Jaguar baby is called a cub. a female is called a Jaguaress. a male is just a Jaguar. and a group is Jamboree. and the scientific name is: Panthera Onca.
