Image capture by Rob Shaw, Model and Lighting by God. A Jaguar regards the photographer with a thoughtful stare. I believe this is one of the juveniles born in March 2013. SETTING: 2014-03-01, 1017 hrs, Jaguar Cove, Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, Washington State, USA.
The jaguar is a big cat, a feline in the "Panthera" genus, and is the only "Panthera" species found in the Americas. The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The jaguar's present range extends from Southern United States and Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina.
