Panthera onca (Felis onca)
The jaguar is an endangered species, it is found from Mexico and most of South America, in Costa Rica it is found in several national parks but it is difficult to observe, in Tortuguero it is known that they swim through the wide rivers to reach the coast at the time that the turtles arrive to lay their eggs. This specimen, I observed on the banks of a river, waiting for its opportunity to be able to swim cross.

It is considered the third largest cat, after the tiger and the lion.
