Mysore Zoo - Jaguars

Mysore Zoo is the most popular zoo at Mysore in India. There are various wild animals and birds at the zoo. One among them is Jaguars.



They have the most powerful jaws of all big cats. They are the only big cats that bite the head of prey rather than the neck like other cats. 



Jaguars are solitary animals occupying large area of land. They are also excellent climbers, leaping from a tree or ledge to ambush their prey.



They are crepuscular, most active near dusk and dawn. They tend to rest in the mid-morning and afternoon in deep shade, under thick vegetation, in caves, or under large rocks.

Such a beautiful beast... Like an enormous and dangerous cat... (That's what I feel when I look at the last picture : it seems friendly, just a pet...) Nice serie.

These are beautiful creatures for sure. Remind me of our two cats! I saw where a tiger in a zoo in Oklahoma attacked one of the workers. I think some folks forget how dangerous these wild animals can be.

Esse jaguar parece com a onça pintada que ainda existe na Floresta Amazônica, em ameaça de extinção porque, infelizmente, está perdendo o território dela!...

Bom domingo!
Boa de semana!
Beijinhos.
