A Focus On Nature Tours Feature 

This and the first 6 photographs below
are of an orphaned Jaguar, 
named "Tika 2",
with which we crossed paths
during the FONT Belize Tour in April 2011,
at a place called Banana Bank.

Jaguars in the wild have been encountered
during FONT tours in Brazil (4 times),
Mexico (twice), and Guatemala (once).

The above sequence of photographs 
were taken of the same animal,
in Belize in April 2011
by Marie Gardner.

The signs below were photographed 
during FONT tours in Mexico and Belize.



In the lobby of a hotel in western Belize,
where Queen Elizabeth II once stayed,
the above painting of a Jaguar hangs on the wall.

During our tours in Belize we've found that 
pictures of Jaguars seem to be just about everywhere,
and especially on postcards!

found during a FONT Belize tour
in March 2007.

During recent years there have been some occurrences
of Jaguars in southern Arizona, in the US.
We've never seen the cat there, but during
the FONT Arizona Tour in August 2010,
we did see the following two paintings in southern Arizona 
at the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge.

There is a black, or melanistic, form of the Jaguar in South America.
About 6 per cent of Panthera onca
(the scientific name of the Jaguar)
are the "Black Jaguar".

The photograph below, of both forms of the Jaguar together,
was taken at a zoo in Guatemala City.
