Camera traps in Argentina

The largest cat in the Americas and the third largest in the world, the Jaguar gets its name from an Indian word meaning 'he who kills with one leap'. It is also the only one of the big cats which cannot roar.

A male Jaguar can grow nearly 2 metres long and can weigh up to 160 kilos. In Brazil, the species inhabits the Pantanal, Amazon and Atlantic Forest regions, where the vegetation is thick and where there is easy access to water.
