Largest of the South American Cats, once roamed the US.
Jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means “He who kills his prey with one leap”.
Unlike many other cats, Jaguars love water and are quite good Swimmers!
Jaguars have the strongest jaw muscles of any other cat.
Females have litters of one to four cubs, which are born blind and helpless at birth
Jaguars mostly take on large prey such as deer, but they are opportunist. They will eat anything from frogs to fish to birds to domestic livestock.
Jaguars are nocturnal creatures, meaning they prefer to be active at night.
Jaguars are unrivaled hunters, with no enemy except for man.
Even though they are now protected, Jaguars are still hunted for their attractive fur
Welcome to the School Year! We have bumper stickers and other Jaguar items that you can purchase. JAG
