For the first time since 1900, evidence of a jaguar has turned up in Mexico. Photos of a male jaguar—the largest cat in the Americas—were released on Feb. 10. More than 100 poop samples from the Sierra Nanchititla Natural Reserve were also provided as evidence.
Jaguars disappeared from Mexico as their habitat shrunk and hunters killed them as part of an illegal wildlife trade. While locals have not seen a jaguar in recent years, it’s possible that the cats have moved to higher elevations.
