A jaguar with spotted fur searching through green tropical vegetation. The jaguar (Panthera onca) is the largest of the big cats found in the New World. It is relatively rare throughout its range from Mexico to Argentina. Best known as a denizon of tropical rainforests, jaguars also inhabit grasslands and scrub habitats where they are predators of deer, capybara and other animals. [captive animal]
