This is the house of the jaguar (Panthera Onca). Their color is yellow. When the Spanish first came to these lands they were haunted by large shadows that carried away with them horses and large men. Powerful predators that were thought to be tigers, eventually baptized with the guaraní word jaguar, which meant ‘the true beast’. A feline accustomed to stalking its prey in dense jungles, across turbulent rivers, under heavy rains and inclement heat: a true beast.
Even if their prey never really gets the chance to see them, they always had the jaguar’s eyes locked onto them: studying them, learning from them, and preparing to launch a devastating attack. This hunter does not have a qualm about going after large preys or crushing with their jaws dense materials such as turtle shells and skulls. Do not be distracted by their beautiful coat, this is a perfect camouflage for this energetic feline that uses sunrises and sunsets for its ambushes.
