The feline on the front cover is a black jaguar, found in Guatemala, Mexico and surrounding countries. This is not a “black panther” and is not a leopard: it’s a jaguar of Mesoamerica.

White jaguars and rare gray jaguars also exist (as you will see in this new PowerPoint lecture by Nicholas Hellmuth and his team at FLAAR).
