Jaguar (Pathera onca), largest cat in Western Hemisphere. Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, Washington, USA.
The Jaguar (Pathera onca), the largest cat in the Western Hemisphere, lives alone except during mating season and when the mother cares for her cubs. Each jaguar has a unique spot pattern, and some are entirely black with faint spots. As of 2003, only 10,00 - 15,000 jaguars remain in the wild, endangered due to habitat loss and human overhunting of its prey animals. Photographed in the Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, Washington, USA.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
