Their scientific name is Panthera onca, and they are the third-largest cat in the world. Jaguars live up to 12-15 years and can weigh around 45-113 kilograms. Most jaguars are found in the Amazon rainforests and Pantanal wetlands. Jaguars are hypercarnivores and can even hunt down animals weighing over 300 lb. Jaguars belong to the family of Felidae, and unlike many felids, jaguars like water and are natural swimmers and can even climb trees. Did you know? Some distinct features that could help in differentiating between a jaguar and a leopard are that jaguars have black dots on the center of their rosettes while leopards don’t. Jaguars are also much larger and sturdier than leopards.
