Pet jaguar personality?

Postby Splashstorm » Wed Oct 17, 2018 2:49 pm

I want to know purely out of curiosity. Aren't jaguars the cunning ones who fake seizures so that prey would come out to see what's wrong??

I've never heard that one, that's interesting and would be quite intelligent.
I have read, however, that they possibly use other forms of mimicry and luring to attract prey. They may use their tail as a lure while fishing and they may use specific sounds to interest prey animals into coming closer.
I've also heard they are one of the more dangerous big cats kept in zoos, as they don't tolerate people as well as certain other big cats, such as cheetah and tigers.

Yes, this is what I've heard a lot of big cat owners say.

I've heard the complete opposite, a zoo keeper bringing jaguar cubs onto a late night show saying they are the least dangerous of all the big cats.
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Just from observation, I'd say cheetahs are the most docile and livable with humans... Not sure about jags. They seem a lot more primal, like leopards and tigers. Cheetahs also used to be used by humans to hunt (like how people used afghan and other sighthounds to hunt): https://theglyptodon.wordpress.com/2012 ... -cheetahs/
