There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Maybe a silly question but do jaguars ever eat the hindquarters of their prey? They always seem to just consume the front end around the head, neck and chest. This is completely opposite to tigers who always consume from the rear and most of time doesn't even get to the chest before abandoning their kill.

Thats jaguars style of consumption their kills.

They start eating the face, neck then will comsume the chest area the most. the hindquarters is more of a Puma style comsumption.

I just dropped a post in the jaguars thread on this regard.

Well yes I know that's their normal pattern of consumption, I was just curious if there are exceptions to this norm? Perhaps you could find those examples  Ha Ha

6.2. CHARACTERISTICS OF JAGUAR KILLS AND CONSUMPTION OF BIG PREYS.

credits: Panthera.Org

https://www.panthera.org/cms/sites/defau...UGUESE.pdf

Jaguars generally attack and consume large prey such as Horses, Donkeys and Adult Cattle. The kills/carcasses  have a bite at the base of the neck, behind the ears and/or at the nape of the neck or at the base of the skull, with neck and/or nape vertebrae fracture. In adult animals death frequently occurs from neck fractures. With the impact of the animal's fall, the head is turned back. In some cases the prey presents a throat bite with death by asphyxia. The jaguar usually starts to consume its prey from the front preferring the flesh of the throat, the lower part of the neck, the chest and the flesh that covers the ribs and the reeds or scapulas, and the back part of the animal (behind the ribs) may remain intact. The stomach and intestines may or may not be cleverly extracted without spilling its contents. On the other hand, small calves may be consumed in their entirety, including the head and legs. On some occasions, the jaguar consumes the nose, ears, tongue, testicles and udder, depending on the sex of the prey. These parts are generally not consumed by the puma. The jaguar can drag its prey over long distances sometimes over one kilometer through forests and other difficult terrain. It does not cover its prey with leaves or other materials. When you find a suspected jaguar prey you should proceed with caution when approaching it as the jaguar often remains close to its prey to consume it as the tropical heat rapidly decomposes it. Also with this the jaguar avoids its consumption by carrion birds. If during the approach to the place where the prey was killed it is noticed that the vultures stay on the nearby trees, it is quite likely that the jaguar is nearby. The jaguar is more associated with forested areas with abundant water resources and tends to avoid areas altered by human activity. The characteristics previously exposed are not absolute but represent general rules and may vary between different jaguars.
