- n. A large feline mammal (Panthera onca) of Central and South America, closely related to the leopard and having a tawny coat spotted with black rosettes.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A carnivorous mammal, Felisonca, the largest and most formidable feline quadruped of America. It belongs to the family Felidæ, and most resembles the leopard or panther of the old world, being spotted like a pard; but it is larger, and the spots, instead of being simply black, are ocellated—that is, they have an eye of tawny color in the black, or are broken up into rosettes of black on the tawny ground. It does not stand quite so high on its legs as the cougar, but it has a heavier body, and is altogether a more powerful beast. The length is about 4 feet to the root of the tail, which is 2 feet long; the girth of the chest is about 3 feet. The jaguar inhabits wooded parts of America from Texas to Paraguay.
- n. A carnivorous spotted large cat native to South and Central America. Scientific name: Panthera onca.
