Unique Spots - Did You Know?

The distinctive spotted coat of a jaguar is so unusual that their spots aren’t technically called spots! Each marking on a jaguar’s coat is known as a rosette, because rather than being a single solid spot, these clusters are composed of a lighter spot encircled by several darker ones, which distinguishes the jaguar’s pelage from that of a leopard. Each rosette resembles an individual rose planted along the jaguar’s body, explaining the origin of the term.

Celebrate World Jaguar Day on April 10!
