I love seeing Pirata flying through the water in one of his spectacular failures - trying to get food from his supermarket - the Pantanal. 
Jaguars have a tough life trying to find food in their watery restaurant - they may want caiman for dinner but it may take them days and many spectacular failures before they are successful.  Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we all need for our life. 
My @natgeo jaguar story come out next week in the December issue of National Geographic Magazine! and LOOK for our @NatGeoWild Big Cat Week show on Sunday Dec 10th @ 9PM Filmed with @bertiegregory.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid 
Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.
So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves.
