Jaguar – Antwerpen Zoo (Belgium)
The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a big cat in the Panthera genus, and is the only Panthera species found in the Americas.
This spotted cat most closely resembles the leopard physically, although it is usually larger and of sturdier build and its behavioral and habitat characteristics are closer to those of the tiger. While dense rainforest is its preferred habitat, the jaguar will range across a variety of forested and open terrains. It is strongly associated with the presence of water and is notable, along with the tiger, as a feline that enjoys swimming.
