Habitat Variability - Did You Know?
The typical habitats associated with jaguars are tropical lowland forests in close proximity to water. However, jaguars have been known to call a variety of regions home. They can also be found living in dense rainforests, flooded swamplands, vast wetlands, pampas grasslands, thorny scrublands, and dry deciduous forests. Jaguars generally avoid mountainous habitats and higher elevations in favor of low forests, but their comfort with diverse environments is another example of their remarkable adaptability.
