Did you know?
Poised on the edge of a canyon, the jaguars study a livestock corral in the shrubland below. They are seeking prey at dusk, which is typical for large predators. A jaguar's muscular, compact frame is built for strength and stealth rather than long-distance running. Its jaws can crush the skulls of small mammals and can even pierce turtle shells. For larger prey, the jaguar pounces and brings down the victim by twisting [ok?] the head with a swipe of its wide paw.

The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas. They are almost always yellowy tan with black spots called rosettes. Black jaguars are occasionally seen in rain forests. The rosettes of black jaguars are still faintly visible.

What makes one area a frozen desert and another a soggy forest? Embark on a trip across the North American continent to visit the incredible variety of biomes that support and challenge our requirements for survival.
