The jaguar is a mammal specific to the American continent and belongs to the family Felidae.
The jaguar’s present range extends from Mexico, across much of Central America and in south to Paraguay and northern Argentina

CHARACTERISTICS
Being a well-muscled animal, the mature jaguar weighs 59-96 kg. Males can reach record weights up to 150 kg. Its length varies from 1,62 m to 1,83 m and their tails may add a further 75 cm.
 
BEHAVIOR
Like most cats, the jaguar is solitary outside mother-cub groups.. Adults get into contact only during the mating period, but generally they avoid one another.
The jaguar uses scrape marks, urine, and faeces to mark its territory.

DIET
The jaguar eat wild animals whose size varies from that of a mouse to that of a deer.

REPRODUCTION
Jaguar females reach sexual maturity at about two years of age, and males at three or four.
The cat is believed to mate throughout the year in the wild, although births may increase when prey is plentiful.

Oameni buni, dacă tot încercaţi să realizaţi un site de informare al utilizatorului, verificaţi de 2 ori informaţiile menţionate.

Dacă jaguarul este cel mai rapid mamifer din lume, atunci ce mai face ghepardul ?
