This drawing is the 2nd version of the Jaguar. Seeing as these are one of my favorite big cats I didn't mind redoing the illustration. Jaguars are stunningly gorgeous and one day I hope to see one in the wilds of the rainforest. This drawing is based on a photo by Harry Moon.
The Jaguar ranges from the southwestern United States to Argentina. It is the only member of the Panthera genus native to the Americas. This large predatory feline live in a variety of habitats, from dense jungle and scrubland to shoreline forests. The Jaguar is one of the smaller big cats, measuring about 27 - 30 inches (68 -76 cm) from the ground to their shoulders, a body length of somewhere between 3.5 - 6.25 feet (1.1 - 1.9 m) weighing about 190 -300 pounds (57-113 kg) with the females being somewhat smaller. Jaguars are revered in many indigenous American cultures. The Maya believed that the Jaguar helped the sun to travel under the earth at night, ensuring its new rising every morning. Despite the loss of habitat and being hunted for their furs for many decades, this large cat isn't endangered, but considered "near threatened" by conservation groups.
