Wild Zoo Animals Toys For Kids – Learn Jaguar Leopard differences – Lion Tiger Compare Big Cat Size


hi it’s Kerry today I’m answering some
of the viewers questions about the differences between leopards and jaguars
and also I’m talking about the size of different big cats. The Jaguar is found
in the Americas mainly in Central America and into Argentina and is known
as a new world cat Jaguars are the apex predator of the Americas
Jaguars are up to 50% larger than leopards.Leopards have the longest tail
though. leopard populations are found from China and India to the Middle East and
down into Africa it is an old-world cat leopards have plain rosettes with no
central spot in the middle where as Jaguars tend to have larger
rosettes with spots in the middle Jaguars are the third largest cat in the
world and the leopard is fourthe after the tiger and lion. can you tell me who has
the longest tail the Jaguar or leopard? The Jaguar is exceptionally strong with
the ability to deliver up to 2,000 pounds of bite force
this makes Jaguars the most powerful of the great cats even more so than lions and Tigers. The Jaguar has a much broader forehead and wider jaw than the
leopard notice that the Jaguars have a large barrel like abdomen with a stocky
build. leopards have a very slight build Jaguars like the tiger seem to be
content with spending the lengthy periods of time in the water leopards do not like water and will avoid
having to go through it leopards are very territorial and will
actively patrol demarcate and fight for land they will not permit other leopards
moving into their areas, Jaguars are less territorial and have more of a relaxed
home range with overlapping ranges the African leopard with its long tail he
leopards kill using a suffocating bite to the throat or mouth
Jaguars prefer to use one of two methods killing with the canines piercing through
the preys skull and by severing the spinal column with a powerful bite and
breaking the neck. Both species of cat prefer to hunt by stalking and ambush
rather than lengthy chases Thet Jaguar will usually drag its prey
whilst walking backwards where as the leopard on the other hand will pull it
forwards Jaguars do not attempt to hide their kills using leaves or sand a practice often seen with leopards. The Jaguars
are not as agile entries as leopards and spend less time in the trees the leopard
is very arboreall and has a long tail to aid in balance the Jaguar has a much
shorter tail. I’m going to look at the different sizes of big cats. A liger is
the crossbreeding of a lion with a tiger. Tiger is the largest big cat
