A sleek, silent hunter, most of the Jaguar population is concentrated in the dense rain forests of South America. While most jaguars have the iconic orange with black-spotted coats, some jaguars can also be completely black. If you look closely enough, though, you can see the black spots covering their bodies are still present, but are hard to see on an all-black fur background. These spots serve as the jaguar’s camouflage when stalking prey. Jaguars are the 3rd largest big cat, only lions and tigers are bigger. Like their larger tiger cousins, jaguars love the water and are very good at swimming.
