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.

@peter
Today I attended a SYMPOSIUM named  LOS FELINOS DE VENEZUELA with the best researchers of Cats in the country with a great surprise, Dr Wlodzimierz Jedrzejewski who has been doing a research of Jaguars and Pumas for more than 9 years found out a Coalition of two big adult males in Hato Pinero in  the Venezuelan Llanos they have already killed 3 males and have a huge territory with 3 females for them, they are mating  without any fight between them, Jaguars are supossed to be solitary cats. He said that he estimates that the largest Jaguar in Pinero weights at least 120 kilograms. Hato Pinero is a big Ranch located in Estado Cojedes, Venezuela

Surprising indeed! Aren't Venezuelan llanos similar to el Pantanal? Guessing that behavior is less common in the Amazon basin or places where big prey are more sparse?
