Multiple views of the South American Jaguar which shows the patterns on the coat quite well.

Habitat: in the south of the USA, Central America and in the rain forests of South America, but mostly at the edge of the forest and in the savannah. Jaguars usually live in areas that are well supplied with woods, shrubs or high grass and – most importantly – water.
Unfortunately the number of these beautiful cats decreases due to deforestation of the rain forest, in some parts entire subspecies have vanished.
Fur: Jaguars have yellow to reddish-brown fur with black rosettes, which contain up to two pots. (to compare: leopards have rosettes without spots). These rosettes merge into stripes on legs and neck. The underside of the neck to the belly is ochre to white, as are the insides of the legs.
Physique: Jaguars are rather sturdy and strongly built, yet still they are very lithe and agile. Due to their massive appearance one tends rather to thinking that they live on the ground, which in fact is generally correct. However, they are gifted with excellent climbing skills, which makes them in trees at home just as leopards.

Class: Mammalia (Mammals)
Order: Carnivora (Carnivore)
Family: Felidae (Cats)
Subspecies: Pantherinae
Species: Panthera (Big cats)
Sort: Panthera onca (Jaguar)/approx. 8 subspecies
(information from Jaguar, Leopard and Panther – smart big cats )

    OMG!! This is absolutely awesome!! I love the multi-view and the colors are so vivid!! I can’t believe that this is so beautiful…it made me keep going back to look at it! You have definitely got a talent for drawing animals. IMHO it is much harder to draw animals because we as humans are “creatures” of habit and I know that when I attempt to draw and animal..it’s hard to turn my mind off of human characteristics and turn to animals. You obviously do not have that problem. Fantastic work!!

  • Well.. I’ve been drawing animals since 1976 (I started doing it because I was at home with two preschoolers – SANITY) and I do so love them.. I’m hoping that it shows.. and thank you..
