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.

No weight provided for him, but he's an absolute tank.
I'd love to know what his weight was as well.

Ironic that a thread titles Modern weights for jaguars is just full of dead jaguars killed by gutless hunters.

Not really "modern" when it was killed 30 years ago, now is it?

Your requirements for modern are different from others, 30 years ago seems fairly modern to me. Also, you have the first page with no hunting photos and weights, I get that you dont like how the weights and photos were obtained but the information is still good and is used by the community. 
Considering to this day Male Jaguars fall between 100-160kg in the pantanal, I'd say these hunting weights fit right in there perfectly, dont they?

He was a huge Jaguar hunted in 1959 en el Rosero Estado Apure in the Venezuelan Llanos , it weighted 148 kilograms.

Sadly this big and powerful Jaguar was killed recently in Macarena Meta Colombia in Los Llanos very close to the Venezuelan border, no data on its size and weight.

@ShereKhan
It is extremely difficult to spot a Jaguar in the wild, the only place where you can see Wild Jaguars and you see many pictures of them is El Pantanal in Brazil.

I think, that it depends a bit how we define modern. Many things, like deforestation in many places has been terrible fast. But I think, that last 30-40 years can be considered reasonable modern times, imo. Even though in that time period technology has developed so much, that people now 20 years old would be shocked, if sent back in time 40 years :) But maybe animals are pretty much same as they were back then, unless gone to extinction.

What a monster, he was a huge jaguar for sure.
It really is amazing how so many of these guys are over 110kgs, they really are Lioness/Tigress sized cats.
