Watching through the leaves
Not really a wild big cat, but a just as proud and more domestic type

Unlike many other felines tigers seem to like the water and can often be seen cooling off in pools or streams of water on hot days to refresh themselves and to get relief from the scorching heat. Thank you for loving and respecting them.

Photo by @FransLanting Whether you call them cougars, pumas, or mountain lions, they’re all the same cat. They were nearly wiped out along the coast of California near Santa Cruz where I live, but since they were given protection in 1990, they’ve rebounded. They now occur even at the edges of towns and cities, but they are very good at avoiding people. I’ve seen tracks close to my home, but it took the company of a researcher and a tracker to come eye to eye with this splendid big cat looking down on us from an old oak tree. The comeback of cougars in California is a success story, and it shows what can happen if we’re tolerant of apex predators and if we’re protecting enough wild land where they can survive.

Encontrando os Big-5:🐘🐃🦏 🦁 🐆😱😍Dois dias de safári inesquecíveis em busca dos cinco mamíferos selvagens mais perigosos da África. Quem os viu atrás das grades em zoos, adestrados em circo ou já fez uma selfie com um deles agindo como animais domésticos, além de ser conivente com crueldade, NUNCA realmente foi tocado, literalmente, pelo amor e a magia de vê-los em ação, LIVRES, em seu habitat!! #krugernationalpark #bigfive #bigcatsinitiative #bigcats #causeanuproar #heartheroar #animaislivres

Jaguars (Panthera onca) exist in 18 countries in Latin America, from Mexico to Argentina. Despite having a large range, jaguars have been eradicated from 40% of their historic range. Unfortunately, jaguars and their prey are rapidly disappearing due to loss of habitat, deforestation, poaching and conflict with local people. The latter occurs when jaguars attack farm animals due to reduction of wild prey. As a consequence of losing cattle and because ranchers believe jaguars are a serious threat to humans, they end up killing these big cats. Establishing a model of ranching compatible with jaguar conservation is vital to show how big predators can live peacefully with humans as long as we guarantee the equilibrium of their habitat. .
