Black jaguar until swimming was caught on the camera in a rare moment

Interessante Gerüchte

The jaguar is the biggest wild cat found in the Americas.

These predators, which are somewhat bigger than their relative, the leopard, often reside in deep tropical jungle.

As a result, its presence ranges from the southwestern United States and Mexico in North America, over much of Central America, and into Paraguay and Argentina in South America.

Around 6% of the jaguar population is black due to a dominant melanotic gene.

Their skin pigments black, giving in a magnificent dark coat. Over 500 jaguars with melanism survive in the wild, with many of them inhabiting the Amazonian jungle.

As a result, you can understand how unusual it is to see such an evasive species.

While performing a conservation research over the 150 million acres of Amazon Region Protected Areas.

A World Wildlife Fund crew observed something even more unusual — a black leopard swimming down the Amazon River.

Because of their robust limbs, these solitary felines are considered to be exceptionally competent and powerful swimmers.

„This morning, after an enormous rainstorm, we walked out, and a member of our team screamed, Oh my God, it’s a Cayman [swimming],“ said Carter Roberts, President and CEO of WWF-US.

„As we drew closer, I thought it was a cat, but our guide told us it was a black jaguar.“
