El Jaguar

Price
$30

The largest cat in the Americas, the jaguar now occupies about 46% of it’s historic range (as of 2008).  As apex predators, Jaguars are also “keystone” species, meaning that their survival has a direct correlation to the larger balance of the ecosystems in which they currently survive. Jaguars are victim to habitat fragmentation and loss due to agriculture and rural development, and have historically been hunted for their pelts and as nuisance predators by cattle ranchers.
