Jaguars like to remain hidden when they sleep. They typically find an area that is surrounded by trees. A jaguar may even sleep in a tree. Jaguars also rest in areas of tall grass.
Jaguars can often be found around trees, as they will climb them in order to pounce on their prey. Unlike most felines, jaguars do enjoy the water and are known as good swimmers. Rivers contain many creatures that jaguars can prey on, including fish, turtles and caimans. The majority of jaguars can be found in the Amazon Basin, although others live throughout Central and South America.
