Jaguars are the third largest feline only to the tiger and lion. They have been a very threatened species for quite sometime now and their numbers continue to fall.
Some tend to confuse Jaguars with Leopards but a Jaguar is physically much larger with a sturdier build and possess similar characteristics to that of the lion family.
The Jaguar has an exceptionally powerful bite. One strong enough to pierce armored reptiles which could be the reason they like to take the odd dip in order to find food. Did you know they could do this?
