Caption: Jaguar. View of a jaguar (Panthera onca) prowling on the forest floor. The jaguar is a carnivorous big cat which inhabits the forests of Central and South America. They hunt mainly on the ground, as here, although they are accomplished climbers, and often rest in trees. They eat a wide variety of animals, including large rodents, deer, tapir, birds, turtles and fish. After a kill, they usually drag their prey to a safe spot to eat it at their leisure. They are strong, and may carry it up trees or even across rivers. Unlike most other cats, jaguars like water, and are powerful swimmers. They are solitary animals, meeting only to breed. Photographed in Belize.
