Jaguars tend to live in areas with dense cover such as the Amazon of South America. The Jaguar is the third largest cat species in the world and largest in the Americas. The Jaguar have a nocturnal lifestyle and hunting techniques. They prefer to live and hunt alone. They use their large padded paws to move quietly through the forest. The name Jaguar means “he who kills with one leap”. They are usually able to kill their prey in one powerful bite.The two biggest reasons for the decline in the Jaguar population is deforestation and humans. The most common Jaguars have spotted coats, but they can also be black in color, there is even a very rare white Jaguar. I would make it possible for Jaguars to camouflage themselves. This adaptation will be helpful because the jaguar can be safe and blend in with its surroundings.
