The jaguar is a big cat and a fierce animal in the family Felidae, there are about 9 subspecies. The "black jaguar" is a black variant of the jaguar, there are also a few white jaguars.
The jaguar is second only to the tiger and the lion in size among the big cats, it is the third largest feline. The jaguar's body is distributed with leopard-like markings, only that the markings are larger and have spots in them. Its body shape is similar to that of a tiger, the head takes up a larger portion, and it has a shorter tail, and bulges in its eye sockets.
Jaguars are carnivores, they prey on deer, peccaries (a species found in South America, an animal that resembles a wild boar but is not one), monkeys, crocodiles, anteaters, capybaras (the largest rodents), it also preys on birds, fish, turtles, snakes, etc. They are good climbers, and are also good at swimming. Unlike other big cats, jaguars prefer to bite their prey on the head rather than the neck when hunting.
The various subspecies of jaguar are found in Central and South America, inhabiting tropical rainforests, savannas, wetland areas and parts of the highlands, and mountainous areas.
