HAPPY WORLD ANIMAL DAY!
In this photo, the Argentinian Jaguar in extinction. Sadly, there are fewer than 200 wild jaguars left in all of Argentina. They have been hunted almost to extinction for their fur and pushed out of their territory for developments.
Soon, the only remaining populations will live in zoos. Although jaguars have a reputation as man-eaters, there are numerous stories about men being followed for miles through the forest by solitary jaguars. These stories give credence to the theory that these animals prefer to escort men off their territory rather than attack them.
These (and all animals) are amazing. We love animals and wish people would take more care of them.
Have a nice day!!
