These amazing photos show animals in a way that you’ve never seen them before. Each image serves as a reminder that we share the planet with some truly awe-inspiring creatures, created by Allah (God) May He be Glorified and Exalted.
Anaconda: An anaconda is a large, non-venomous snake found in tropical South America. Although the name actually applies to a group of snakes, it is often used to refer only to one species in particular, the common or green anaconda, Eunectes murinus, which is one of the largest snakes in the world.
Jaguar: The jaguar is a big cat, a feline in the Panthera genus, and is the only Panthera species found in the Americas. The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere.
- Although jaguars are often tawny-colored, they can vary from reddish-brown to black. Black jaguars are also called black panthers.
- A jaguar’s bite is twice as strong as a lion and it can crush heavy bones in large prey easily.
- The term “jaguar” comes from the Native American word “yaguar”, which means “he who kills with one leap.”
- Jaguar populations are rapidly declining due to habitat loss in South American rainforests and poaching for their fur.
- Jaguars were once found in the Western and Southern U.S. including Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico. However, the jaguar population was quickly eliminated in the U.S. and very few sightings have been recorded since the 1960s.
- Young cubs are born blind and helpless. They stay with their mother for about two years learning to hunt.
