Jaguar - South America - Night Forest

Jaguar (Panthera onca)
The biggest cat in South America, the jaguar hunts under cover of darkness. Sharp senses and stealth tactics give it an edge over unsuspecting prey. Their eyes are designed to see in dim light—six times better than you do. Furred foot pads muffle the sound of footsteps. Long whiskers feel objects in the dark, and rotating ears pick up the slightest noise.
