The jaguar lives in the rainforest and unlike other cats, it likes water. The jaguar uses its fur to camouflage in the rainforest environment, and hunts native species. The jaguar also is an excellent swimmer, and eats fish along with other water animals. The jaguar waits for its prey in tree branches, and can sleep in the branches. It also can run up to 50 miles per hour, which is its maximum speed. The jaguar might have to adapt to environmental changes in the next thousand years. Like all animals, the jaguar needs water to drink and hunt. With droughts in our world we need to consider what the earth will be like in the future. Let's say the rainforest has little rain now. Not only would it be thirsty, it would have to move its diet to only land animals. The jaguars will have to conserve water like camels.
