jaguar (Panthera onca), South American tapir (Tapirus terrestris)

JAGUAR ATTACKING A TAPIR. Here is a graphic scene in the South American forest. From a convenient ambush the Jaguar springs out upon a Tapir, which has been enjoying herself with her young on the river bank. Frequently when a Jaguar jumps on the back of a Tapir the attacked animal runs into a thicket with its bloodthirsty assailant, whose hold on the tough, thick hide is weak, and thus the Jaguar is often thrown off. In the case presented in the illustration the Tapir can dive with its young, and thus escape the Jaguar, which, like all other Cats, can do little damage in the water. (125)

The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a big cat which is the only extant Panthera species native to the Americas. The jaguar's present range extends from Southwestern United States and Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina.

The South American tapir (Tapirus terrestris), Brazilian tapir, lowland tapir or anta, is one of five species in the tapir family. The lowland tapir is the largest surviving native terrestrial mammal in the Amazon.
