-Notes: The jaguar, a powerful climber and swimmer, is the largest cat on the North American continent. This tawny cat with dark rosettes closely resembles its cousin, the leopard, which inhabits a different continent. Jaguars can be distinguished from leopards by coat pattern, their rosettes containing small dark dots. They also have a more muscular, compact build, a proportionally shorter tail and larger, blunt head. In habitat and behavior, the jaguar fills a niche equivalent to the old world tiger. These powerful hunters prefer dense forested locales near water, and prey on medium-sized mammals such as peccaries and capybaras as well as birds, fish, crocodilians and even armadillos. Jaguars, unlike other big cats, kill their prey with a powerful bite through the skull. This particular skull is from a very large male with excellent dentition. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw). Please allow up to 1 week for processing time with cast replicas as most of these items are made to order. Thank you for your understanding.
