Jaguar or Panthera onca is a large felid species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.
The jaguar’s present range extends from Southwestern United States and Mexico in North America, across much of Central America, and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina in South America.
The jaguar or Panthera onca is a compact and well-muscled animal. It is the largest cat native to the Americas and the third largest in the world, exceeded in size by the tiger and the lion. Its coat is generally a tawny yellow, but ranges to reddish-brown, for most of the body.
Panthera onca fur is covered with rosettes for camouflage in the dappled light of its forest habitat. The spots and their shapes vary between individual jaguars: rosettes may include one or several dots. The spots on the head and neck are generally solid, as are those on the tail, where they may merge to form a band.
While the Panthera onca closely resembles the leopard, it is generally more robust, with stockier limbs and a squarer head. The rosettes on a jaguar’s coat are larger, darker, fewer in number and have thicker lines with a small spot in the middle.
Like all cats, Panthera onca is an obligate carnivore, feeding only on meat. It is an opportunistic hunter, and its diet encompasses at least 87 species.
An analysis of 53 studies documenting the diet of the jaguar or Panthera onca across its distribution revealed that its prey ranges in weight from 2.2 to 286.6 lb; it prefers capybara, giant anteater, collared peccary, nine-banded armadillo, wild boar and white-nosed coati being the most preferred species.
