Adriano's weight of 130 is included on a scietific paper: Consideraciones sobre la peligrosidad del jaguar para los humanos: ¿quién es letal para quién?, by Hoogesteijn et al. (2016)

"Figure 20. This same large male photographed a few months before the previous photo, on the morning of his capture (130 kg on the night of 12/12/2012), we call him Tel, due to a lateral mark equal to the earpiece of an antique phone. He doesn't bother himself with cars, ships, or close human observers."

Note that he was weighed in late 2012 and was last seen in 2019, I doubt the weight of 130 kg was his peak weight.

A few days back looking amazing as usual. My favorite jaguar from Porto Jofre.

The photographer of this photo said this to me:

"Xingu gave the impression of being the same size but fatter than Edno when I photographed him last year, and I believe it is much younger too. He looked very good, healthy. As for Balam, I wouldn't know what to say."

So he's the second person to tell me Xingu is comparable in size to Edno, the other one being Abigail Martin, and the other photographer I asked recently compared him directly to Balam. These people have a better idea of how large a jaguar is considering they see multiple and know what the size ranges are like. He also tagged two other guides to get their opinions so I'll update when they do.

Xingu being so young could possibly be one of the largest males in that area already and he could even surpass Edno in size in a few years or less which is crazy. Uka's genes did wonders on him but I wonder who was his father, maybe Hero? Uka did mate with him once and could've possibly done it again, she also mated with Mick.

Do you guys know if there's a list that includes all the weighs reported of adult male jaguars from Pantanal? Just to calculate an accurate average for them

RE: Modern Weights and Measurements of Jaguars - Dark Jaguar - 04-26-2021

I am gonna drop this post paying homage to the Master and Legend Dr. Peter Crawshaw, some jaguars captured by him and other with his participation including statements by Crawshaw himself, such a humble guy.



Pita male from Porto Primavera


*This image is copyright of its original author



*This image is copyright of its original author




As he described him to be a very short jaguar in height but very thick, muscular robust with very impressive measurements.

I feel really greatful to have gotten the measurements from him of these 3 porto primavera jaguars (Pita, Zezão and Suely).


Crawshaw and Pita Porto Primavera male of 122 kg

Zezão male.

Something I didn't mention here in the forum Dr. Crawshaw said was that a few months before the capture of Zezão melanistic male there was another Dark male from Porto Primavera of 116 kg who was unfortunately killed in one of the farms.

These large dark jaguars clearly shows what Dr Crawshaw stated in one of his interviews that Porto Primavera region Used to produce the largest Melanistic Jaguars in the Planet


In addition to that, with the particular massive Dark melanistic male jaguar of 125 kg (Preto Pintado de Preto) unfortunately poached by Platero in Fazenda Santa Clara which was the whole reason I started my first ever conversation with Crawshaw about that specific large 125 kg Dark male jaguar from Porto Primavera that was killed in Faz. Santa Clara - Anaurilândia. Back then I was wondering if he could be from Cerrado but Crawshaw told me Faz. Santa Clara is neither At. Forest nor Cerrado, its was part of a very unique, reach in biodiversity mini biome akin to the Pantanal in the the Varjões do Paranazão called Porto Primavera which today it is unfortunately found underwater and the rest of the story you guys already know.

These jaguars captured bellow Crawshaw accompanied their captures campaign.


Capture of Peter Schmidt male jaguar.

He was recaptured at Fazenda São Bento (São Bento farm) in Porto Jofre North Pantanal by Panthera with the researchers Alison Devlin, Fernando Tortato, Joares May and Peter Crawshaw himself and here are a few words by him about this capture.


Year: 2013

https://www.facebook.com/peter.crawshaw/posts/4235174937663

Peter Crawshaw

''First capture of the campaign, on the first night: a recapture of a male first captured in 2010. Although not working for quite some time, both the collar and the neck of the animal were in perfect condition. The collar was replaced by a new one and it is now already transmitting the locations of this male, which this morning is 5 km from where he was captured and released (photos Dr. Jacqui Frair).''

As additional information Dr. Crawshaw also mentions answering a few comments that the male jaguar was estimated to be 8 years old due to the yellowish of his teeth and he weighed 105 kg, 7 kg more than when he was first captured. A few months after his first capture the component of his GPS had been taken/ripped off as Crawshaw stated it was possibly due to fights.

Its also worth noting that after receiving many congratulations from people and friends He mentions that ''who deserves the credits of these captures is the new generation of biologists with their hard flawless work on the project and he has only been accompaning their work that now its theirs the hard task and responsability to protect not only the jaguars but the nature in general during times that the future of conservation is even more uncertain in the face of the omni-present challenge of more and more people in the world and, as a rule, governments that still think we can live without natural resources. Each one of us must do our part and believe, be optimistic - it's this, or this... The worst is unthinkable.''

Great words.

The Capture of Teo.

October 2012


Peter Crawshaw

''Teo, the newest male jaguar with collar in Fazenda São Bento, captured last night, weighing 130 kg.''


According to Joares May they were after him for 5 days.

Capture of Ísis female or Teo's girfriend as Dr. Crawshaw stated.

Here's what Crawshaw said about ísis capture as well as the mention of Teo male.

Year: 2012

Peter Crawshaw

''And didn't we happened to capture Teo's girlfriend tonight? The two were together and we almost had to anesthetize the big guy (Teo) again. But Joares was calm and ''cold-blooded'', he anesthetized the female and we took her to work calmly away from the male. In the end, everything ended well, the campaign was extremely productive: one collar removed and a resident couple mating pair who were previously without collars and now monitored. And as an observation which shows that the collar really does not interfere in the behavior of the animals: in less than 24 hours after she had been anesthetized and received the collar, Teo was already reunited with the female again.''

''Isis, in full recovery from the anesthesia, already dawning the day of a new life contributing to the conservation of the species in the Pantanal. And if all goes well, sometime in January, we will be watching - from afar, without interfering - her caring of a new offspring!''

Here is the footage registered by a TV team in Porto Jofre of Teo and ísis seeng together mating, both collared.

Lastly he was finishing writing his book and in December last year he finished the last chapter of the creative write and there was only one chapter left to be finished, I'm not sure if he really did finished it but I'll keep an eye to see any news if the book gets published so you all stay tuned about his book.

Weight and Measurements of jaguars captured in Miranda Ranch - Pantanal.

Check for more details in the study.



Measure method: Between the Pegs

Taking advantage I am gonna make a clarification here on the shoulder height measurement I was informed on the Porto Primavera jaguars.

About the shoulders height measure Dr. Crawshaw didn't tell me if it was ''from the tip of the paw, with extended paw, from heel...'' or anything like that so I don't know about that detail but I am sure it was done the right way.

M&M's third capture, 118 kg.

@KRA123 you might be interested on this one.


*This image is copyright of its original author


In February 2019 M&M male (Matheus Manco) was recaptured by Onças do Rio Negro project in South Pantanal for the third time but I never knew how big he really was on that particular capture.



Thanks to Carlão Csermak who mentioned his weight after the capture.


Carlão Csermak

''Thankful to the universe for having the opportunity to be back working in the conservation field!

Recapture of Manco (118 kg!) for collar change. I haven't forgotten how unique this sensation is.

Every jaguar is the first.''

Other than the Almeida hunting book, are there any published scientific records of the chest girth and body length of wild jaguars? I've found even a couple scientific records for every large cat but no luck in the jaguar department unfortunately.

The other great source for jaguar measurements comes from Hoogesteijn's "El Tigre Americano"

Measurements of Venezuelan females, this includes Llanos and other areas, adults and sub-adults:

Largo total: total length
Largo de cuerpo: body length

Venezuelan males, notice that the males from Falcón and Amazonas states are not Llanos specimens, those lower the average.
