Jaguars like to swim

You have probably noticed that most cats don’t like water!

But jaguars are different. They love the water and prefer their home to be near it. They enjoy bathing, playing and hunting for fish and caiman (a small alligator) in streams and pools.

Jaguars also love fishing. They will lay by a river, hitting it with their tail to attract fish. When a fish comes to investigate the jaguar spears them with razor sharp claws.
