Hi Helder ,what a welcome addition to a sadly endangered beautiful animal ,are they bigger than leopards and do they use trees as much as leopards . Keith


Hi Keith,
Yes, Jaguars are bigger than leopards… a big male leopard is about the size of a female lioness… They do climb trees but nowhere near as often as leopards.

Mario, thanks for your response, very interesting to hear your knowledge and understanding of jaguars on our blog. We look forward to any more information that you can provide us with and to posting more of your stories. Regards, rich


Hi Keith,
We are glad to hear that you saw Caiman Ecological Refuge’s jaguars here at Londolozi blog.
Male Jaguars can weight up to 150 kg and even though jaguars leave a lot of claw marks on trees and sometimes sleep on them they are the top of food chain at the Pantanal so jaguars prefer staying on the ground level.
Soon more news about the largest wildcat of the Americas.
Best wishes.


Hi there !
is there any project of bringing jaguars to africa ? as there was a successful project of bringing tigers to wild africa. Is anyone monitoring that project anymore?

There is no project that I know of that is bringing Jaguars to Africa. This story is about Jaguars in their indigenous habitat of the Pantanal in Brazil. The tiger project continues, you can find out more on John Varty’s website http://www.jvbigcats.co.za/
