A large, muscular, spotted feline found in tropical jungles. It is solitary and stalks and ambushes its prey.

Jaguars are very rare animals found in tropical and desert biomes, where they spawn one at a time. Weighting more than a dwarf, these predators can kill an unarmed peasant in moments, but generally fall short against a squad wearing any kind of protection. On top of low frequency rate, no more than 3 jaguars will exist in a single surrounding before they're considered locally extinct. A newborn jaguar is called a cub.

Jaguars can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets, and they're also sometimes brought along with elven caravans. They can receive additional war or hunting training as well, further increasing their strength, though their [MEANDERER] tag will cause them to move around very slowly, making them unreliableBug:9588. Products made from jaguar parts, should you choose to butcher them, are worth thrice more than those made from parts of common animals. Jaguars take 3 years to reach adulthood, though they're fully grown by the age of 2.

Some dwarves like jaguars for their spotted coats.

Admired for their spotted coats.
