PANAMA POSSE LOGO

 

“We were born to be free, to expand our horizons by going where we have never gone before, and not to hang out in the relative comfort and safety of the nest, the known. There is a place within us that is courageous beyond our human understanding; it yearns to explore beyond the boundaries of our daily life.”
– Dennis Merritt Jones

JAGUARS SWIM ! 

Jaguar. The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a large member of the cat family native to South and Central America. … The jaguar’s habitat ranges from the rain forests of South and Central America to more open country in Mexico, but they are rarely seen in mountainous regions including in Costa Rica. They can grow up to 2 m. They are very rare in Costa Rica and their numbers continue to decline drastically. 

The jaguar has featured prominently in the mythology of numerous indigenous peoples of the Americas, including those of the Maya and Aztec civilizations. 

It is threatened by habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, poaching for trade with its body parts and killings in human–wildlife conflict situations, particularly with ranchers.Priority areas for jaguar conservation comprise 51 Jaguar Conservation Units (JCUs), defined as large areas inhabited by at least 50 breeding jaguars. 

 

JAGUAR HABITAT

It inhabits a variety of forested and open terrains, but its preferred habitat is tropical and subtropical moist broad-leaf forest, wetlands and wooded regions. The jaguar is adept at swimming and is largely a solitary, opportunistic, stalk-and-ambush apex predator that is not preyed upon. As a keystone species, it plays an important role in stabilizing ecosystems and regulating prey populations. 

The jaguar is a compact and well-muscled animal. It is the largest cat native to the Americas and the third largest in the world, exceeded in size only by the tiger and the lion.Jaguars have the most powerful jaws of all the big cats

 Panthera's Jaguar Corridor Initiati

 

SYSTEMA NATURAE

Panther’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative aims to connect 90 distinct jaguar populations across the Americas. It stems from an unexpected discovery. For 60 years, biologists had thought there were eight distinct subspecies of jaguar, including the Peruvian jaguar, Central American jaguar and Goldman’s jaguar. But when the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity in Frederick, Maryland, part of the National Institutes of Health, analyzed jaguar DNA from blood and tissue samples collected throughout the Americas, researchers determined that no jaguar group had split off into a true subspecies. From Mexico’s deserts to the dry Pampas of northern Argentina, jaguars had been breeding with each other, wandering great distances to do so, even swimming across the Panama Canal.  https://www.panthera.org/initiative/jaguar-corridor-initiative >>>

Melanistic jaguars are informally known as black panthers

Melanistic jaguars are informally known as black panthers. The black morph is less common than the spotted one. Black jaguars have been documented in Central America and the above image is from Panama.  Best estimates indicate only 600 black jaguars exist in the wild today
