What Kind of Enemies Do Jaguars Have?

Jaguars do not have any natural enemies because they are at the top of their food chain, however, humans are considered to be an enemy of the jaguar because they kill jaguars for fur and through habitat destruction. Jaguars are powerful animals that weigh between 120 to 300 lbs.

These huge wild cats are often 6 feet in length and will eat almost anything that they can find. The Rainforest Alliance reported that jaguars will eat as many as 85 different prey species including deer, fish, turtles, birds, tapirs and squirrels. They live within woodlands, forests, grasslands and rainforests where they often sleep or wait for prey in trees.
