  11. 11. ANIMALS OF THE WORLD Preservation of the environment is our most important concern. These animals are just a few examples of how important every animal is for the ecosystem they belong to. JaguarThey are mammals that belong to the order of carnivores.The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion. The jaguar stands 63 to 76 cm (25 largestto 30 in) tall at the shoulders. Their weight normally ranges between 56 and 96 kg, although thereare larger males records of up to 158 kg. The length of this felid varies between 162 and 183 cmand the tail may add about 75 cm more. His shoulder-height shoulderis about 67-76 cm.The jaguar lives in South and Central América,from Southern United States and México across much ofCentral América and south to Paraguay and northernArgentina.11
  12. 12. Jaguars are not specialized with their food, but eat almost anything they get: big and smallmammals, birds, reptiles, fish and livestock. It is an ambush predator. When hunting, they usuallytry to secretly get very close to the prey, and then the jaguar suddenly jumps at it and throws itdown. Jaguars kill their prey in an unusual way: they bite directly through the skull between theears and into the brain.The jaguar is largely a solitary, opportunistic, stalk-and-ambush predator at the top of the foodchain (an apex predator).The jaguar is a near threatened species and its numbers are declining. Threats include loss andfragmentation of habitat. While international trade in jaguars or their parts is prohibited, the cat isstill frequently killed by humans, particularly in conflicts with ranchers and farmers in SouthAmerica. In Argentina, the jaguar is in critical condition, only living in some areas in Misiones.12

Lions are mostly found in Africa and in reserve in India. They can live in cool areas, very hot areas or in thick forests. This cat lives in virtually every type of habitat. The African continent is absent inside the rainforests, but Asians is where they live. Except for the interior of the Sahara Desert, they can be found in much of Africa, provided they have not been killed in that region. They live for 10to/14 years when they are in the wild. When they are captured, they can live longer than 20 years. They usually live in the savanna and grass land, though they sometimes live in bushes and forests. The lion is the second largest member of the cat family that lives in Africa. It hunts many animals, for example, gnus and antelopes, and eats a lot of meat. Lions live in groups that are called prides; ten to forty lions may live in a pride. Each pride has a home area that is called its territory. Most of the food consists of large mammals, zebras, buffalo, antelope, etc., but they also hunt small mammals, birds and reptiles. They are also scavengers. Hunting: Lions are most active at night, it is during this time that most of the hunts happen. During daylight hours also made some persecution (as long as the occasion permits), these are the ones that usually are achieved documented. But the night world in the African grasslands is extremely active. Natural enemies: Hyenas attack those lions falling wounded, sick or old. They also try to attack females and cubs. When there is a female alone against a pack of hyenas, the lioness usually loses. With healthy lion, it is a different story and one or more of the hyenas that do not flee may be killed. It is also constantly stealing food from hyenas and lions. Crocodiles might be dangerous too, even for an adult lion.13
