Breathtaking photographs and clearly–written text explain the characteristics and habits of the animals featured in each volume of this series. Jaguars, the third largest member of the cat family, are found in Mexico, Central and South America. They can spring as far as 6 meters to catch prey. Families, which include one to four cubs, live together, but by age two the cubs live alone and stalk their own territory.
Like other books in the series, glossary words are explained on pages where they first are mentioned. Further reading and web sites are also provided. The vibrant photos clearly depict these fascinating mammals. Readers can also check out the websites for additional photos and educational videos. Reading this book is an exciting way to learn more about these spotted cats.
