Verso: Jaguar - Felis onca (True) - is the largest and most powerful of the American cats. Although its spotted coat resembles the Old World Leopard, the jaguar has a more massive head, heavier body, and shorter tail. Once found in the Southwestern United States, today the jaguar ranges chiefly from Northern Mexico through Central and South America to Central Argentina. The Jaguar is an excellent swimmer and climbs well in spite of its size - the largest males weigh about 300 pounds. Hall of North American Mammals. Publisher Identification/Series Code: 76901. Publisher: Dexter Press, Inc. Giant Post Card. The American Museum of Natural History, New York, USA
