Panthera onca (Linnaeus)

In the course of ten years’ residence at Paracou, P. Petronelli (personal commun., 1993) told us that he had seen jaguars four times: twice in the daytime and twice at night, all in primary forest. Although we saw the distant eyeshine of large cats on several occasions, our only definite record of this species is based on the pugs of a young adult that L. H. Emmons observed along a dirt road on 13 October 1994.
