Today I tell of the Jaguar. I love Jaguar's. They are beautiful. They are extremely endangered also. Come on poeple.......More info can be found in my article: The End of The Wild.
I will be writing of whales next.


It stalks it pray
Quiet as a mouse
The Jaguar's ambush unseen
He drags off his prey
To a safe place well away
He will feast today

The Jaguar is beauty in grace
He is magestic and mysterious
His beautiful spotted coat
so sought after
But look at those powerful jaws
The largest cat in the Americas

If left alone he could
live sixteen years
But that's asking to much for this poor sought after coat
He lives in thick forest
or swamps
With plenty of water to find
This creature prefers
to live alone
He won't roar at you
But he will snarl and growl

He doesn't want to eat you
He likes wild pigs and deer
Sloths, tapirs, freshwater fish and large rodents
So sad that these beautiful cats are loosing their homes
From habitat loss
and fragmentation
Some hunters find them irresistable too

No more than 15,000
are known to remain
What a tragedy for us
to loose this animal
It's spots forever wiped
off the earth
When will we learn
When will we care
When will enough be enough
When the Jaguar's no longer roaming free?
