With more than 160,000 followers on Twitter, Stunning Wildlife @SWildlifepics a popular Twitter account that tweets amazing photos of wildlife from around the world just tweeted an incredible photo of a Belize Jaguar.
“Belize Wildlife – Jaguar by Gemini,” were the exact words that were tweeted by Stunning Wildlife.
For those who do not know, the Belize Jaguars are the largest and most powerful cats in the Western Hemisphere and can be found throughout Belize in the lowland forests and along the coasts.
According to the Belize Zoo website, in a forest such as the Cockscomb Basin, a jaguar will roam over a territory of about 20 square kilometers.
“Jaguars hunt mainly on the ground and mainly at night. Its food consists of everything from mice to birds to tapir. Across it’s range in the Americas, the Jaguar has been known to hunt 87 species of prey, sometimes including tapirs and crocodiles! Its favorite prey items in Belize include armadillos, pacas, and peccaries. Unlike other wildcats, the Jaguars prefer to kill prey with a single bite to the skull; they posses the most powerful jaws of all the big cats,” reads the description of the Jaguar on the Belize Zoo website.
Speaking about the Tweet, Larry France, Marketing Manager of Chabil Mar, the only Guest Exclusive Resort in Placencia Belize said that Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter have become the perfect platforms to market Belize’s beautiful attractions and he was pleased to see a photo of a Jaguar tweeted by a popular social media account like Stunning Wildlife @SWildlifepics.
“Belize is also home to Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the only Jaguar preserve in the world and a tour of this spectacular sanctuary can be booked at Chabil Mar,” said Larry France.
Note: Although the jaguar, the largest spotted cat in the world is what the reserve is famous for, you are unlikely to see one as the cat is nocturnal. However you will see its tracks along with tracks of tapir, deer, and other wildlife that inhabit the nature reserve.
