ONÇAFARI

One of Sombra male's first appereances.

October 2014.

''An unexpected and unprecedented result in the cameras was the recording of a jaguar
known to the team and had only been sighted once along with Natureza female in February 1st 2013.

This same male jaguar nicknamed Sombra (Shadow in portuguese) is a male of estimated age
over three years and first appeared on our cameras in October 23rd 2014.
on a calf carcass located at invernada do Palma 01. The calf was slaughtered
by the female jaguar Teorema which was sighted feeding on it along with her
daughter Nusa. Sombra male appeared in the carcass at dawn and he fed on it quickly
very attentive and looking several times to the surroundings.''

The team believes that this male inhabits the interior of the RPPN and for this reason
he is not sighted or recorded frequently.

Remember when Mick Jaguar almost lost a HUGE caiman? Nothing can escape this guy!
DID YOU KNOW....Jaguars have evolved to have one of the most powerful bites in the feline family. Allowing them to kill their prey in one bite, crushing the skull or breaking the spine. Their skull is wider then other big cats which makes room for bigger muscles on the top of the head and along the jaws, adding extra force to its bite. Their short jaws act more like kitchen shears then scissors boosting force near the jaw joint and adding to bite strength.

Big male feeding on cattle - Southern Pantanal in 2009

Video:Thiago Filadelfo.

''Male of Onça Pintada on the edge of a clay road inside the Ecological Refuge Caiman, sub-region of Miranda, Pantanal of MS. He ate this carcass for 3 days, as it was close to my field base, I was able to follow him lying there at night. During the day we saw no sign of him only the carcass of the cattle there in the sun but of course he must have been lurking around keeping an eye on it ... at dusk it was certain to see him eating there!''









Tapir suddenly bumps into Sombra male and runs away.

An amazing sighting of Xavier male at night in One of his first appearances in the area after he take over Fantasma (ghost) territory.


Mario Haberfeld the creator of onçafari project just spotted a special visit and it happens to be Xavier male feeding on a Cow carcass and he says that it's been about 30 to 40 minutes since we've spotted him for the very first time and oddly enough Esperança ( a famous female jaguar in the reserve ) was seen around there earlier that night but she left eventually and we were trying to figure out why because Esperança is one of the most habituated jaguars we got in the reserve and after a few minutes Xavier showed up unexpectedly and started feeding on the carcass right next to us and then we found out why Esperança left its cause she's got three cubs and having a new male in the area could be dangerous to the cubs so she didn't risk continue eating the carcass.

all cases in South Pantanal


https://onca-blog.tumblr.com/page/2

The foreman of a retreat at the San Francisco Farm in Miranda describes the attack of a jaguar:

''That moment the cattle was probably grazing, the jaguar jumped on the back of the cattle, bit the ''termite'' ( most likely a local slang ). then with its paw she hooked the nose of the cattle and bit the nape of the cattle. After she bit the nape, that was it. The cattle had no more reaction. Because while the cattle moves beating around, she ( the jag ) keeps squeezing it more''. (2008: Interview)

The skull of the animal was collected by Projeto Gadonça, dedicated to the study of the interaction between the jaguar and the domestic herd. After being cleaned and prepared, it was attached to an extensive collection of samples that included deer bones, white lipped pecari, collared peccari, capybaras, caimans, tapirs, among others. The sample shows the typical perforation of the jaguar bite at the base of the cattle's nape (photo bellow). This type of bite is described by George Schaller (2007), author of the first field study on the species in the Pantanal at the end of the 1970s, as a key element for identifying the attack:

''As usual, the feline had killed the capybara with a bite at the base of the skull. The jaguar carries the head inside its mouth and with the opposite canines punctures the bones into the brain. This technique is remarkable not only for the precision with which the canines pierce through the skull over or near the ears but also for the force required to penetrate half an inch of bone. Jaguars can kill even cows by breaking their skulls using a primitive force strange even to lions and tigers who usually kill large prey more easily by strangulation'' [1]. (2007: 68)

Jaguar predation on water buffalo:

Death of buffalos showcases rises in the number of jaguars in Santander, Middle Magdalena region of Colombia.

According to the article, several buffalos have been found dead due to jaguar predation in different ranches. They registered 11 buffalo, one horse, and four goat kills.

"Sin embargo, el jaguar sí es reconocido por su predilección por los búfalos, camuros, picures, tinajos y otras especies." (however, jaguars are known for their preference for buffalo, goat, agouti, pacas, and other species)

Are you sure its water buffalo or just buffalo?
Water Buffalo adults are almost immune to Jaguar predation as far as I know.

Well they are domestic buffalos which are descendants of water buffalo. They're very common in Colombia ranches. They are more aggressive than cattle and usually bigger which is why predation on them is so scarce in comparison to cattle, nonetheless, we know of female jaguars taking down adult Brahman bull so they appear to do well taking down large bovids.

I know but they are still quite aggressive animals and predation on them is extremely uncommon so it's an impressive feat.

I also recall Almeidas photo of a hunted Water Buffalo in the Pantanal and it had the normal horns, not the small, curved ones shown. I'll confirm tomorrow and post a photo.
