The jaguar is a well-muscled animal with short, stocky limbs that help make it extremely adept at climbing, crawling or swimming. And, while it resemble s the leopard, It’s sturdier and heavier with larger and fewer rosettes. The apex predator of Central and South America, jaguars use their spots for camouflage in the dappled light of its forest habitat. They’re also solitary cats that prefer to stalk and ambush their prey rather than chase down their meals. According to ancient Central and South American folklore, the jaguar was a symbol of power and strength. Both the Mayans and the Aztecs considered it a scared animal that was revered during religious ceremonies. The jaguar’s name comes from the word “yaguara,” meaning “beast of prey” which was adapted by early Portuguese explorers into the word we know today.
