What Eats A Jaguar?

No other animal, including humans, eat the jaguar. The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas and the dominant predator.

That really is it in a nutshell. There is not much more to say.

The jaguar is the third largest cat in the world with a massive bit force considerably stronger than that of the two cats larger than itself: the lion and tiger.

This bite force allows it to kill prey in a unique manner for wild cat species: it simply bites into the prey’s skull and penetrates the brain.

The thick skull of horses and cattle killed by jaguars often have a couple of holes in the skull through the temporal bone.

I mention this to highlight the dominance of this magnificent wild cat species which is found between Mexico in the north (one was seen in America recently!) and Argentina.

If the jaguar lived in China, it would be eaten by rich Chinese! True. Fortunately this cat’s habitat is no where near China. The penchant for rich Chinese to eat tiger parts to improve erections and make them stronger (silly oafs) is a major cause of the declining population of this now highly endangered iconic species.

Note: jaguars were hunted for their skins and are still occasionally hunted but not for eating by humans.

  1. Regardless of what anyone says, the Chinese are backward and conniving. These people tainted baby and pet products that killed our beloveds. They have no regard for life at all. They are more than evil.
    They will consume anything that walks, slithers, or crawls.
    We and the UK still import from them because we owe billions of dollars to them. How could we have let that happen?
