Jaguar the King of Amazon's Tropical Forests

The Jaguar is a large big cat species and the only living member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

With a body length of up to 1.8 metre and a weight of up to 150 kilograms, it is the largest cat species in the Americas and the third largest big cat in the world.

They are professional in hiding in the environment of Amazon's Tropical Rainforests so that they can hide from their prey and hunt them down on perfect time.

They are lethal and professional hunters. Their meal includes Capybara, Deer, Spectacular Caiman and even sometimes Anaconda.

Jaguars can ambush in the bushes for 2-3 hours and when their prey came near to them they attack on it and kill it.

Their jaws have a bite force of 1500 PSI which is 10 times more than a normal human being. It is one of the strongest jaws found on Earth.

Jaguars can hunt down a whole Caiman Crocodile which is approximately 2 times it's own weight even in the lakes or rivers.

The spots present on the body of the Jaguars helps them to hide in the bushes. These spots are also one of the reason for the beauty of these beasts.

Unlike many domestic cats, Jaguars don’t avoid water. They have adapted to living in wet environments, and can be found swimming in lakes, rivers and wetlands. They are confident swimmers, known to cross large rivers.

Both males and females roar, which helps in bringing them together when they want to mate. A Jaguar's usual call is called a ''Saw'' because it sounds like the 'sawing of wood'.

Jaguars are opportunistic hunters and can prey upon almost anything they come across. Capybaras, Deer, Tortoises, Iguanas, Armadillos, Fishes, Birds and Monkeys are just some of the prey that Jaguars usually eat. They can even tackle South America’s largest animal, the Tapir, and huge predators like Caiman.

Jaguars are nocturnal as well as diurnal big cats, as they hunt both in the day and at night and usually travel up to 10km in a night when hunting.
