The Jaguar, Yaguar or Yaguareté (Panthera Onca) is a fierce carnivore of the Panterinos subfamily and genus Panthera. It is the only one of the five current species of this genus found in America. It is also the largest in America and third in the world, after the tiger (Panthera tigris) and the lion (Panthera leo). It is fundamentally lonely, hunting ambushing, being opportunistic when choosing prey. It is a key species for the stabilization of the ecosystems in which it lives; Being a superpredator, it regulates the populations of the species it captures. Adult specimens have an exceptionally powerful bite, even when compared to other large felids, which allows them to pierce the shells of armored reptiles such as turtles and use an unusual method of killing: directly attack the head of the prey between the ears to tip a lethal bite that cuts through the skull with its fangs reaching the brain.

This particular expedition it was specifically designed for those interested in an intense and prolonged exploration journey across the Matses territory, an extraordinary place rich in fauna and flora, where the appearance of the king of the Amazon THE JAGUAR in such of inhospitable and little explored jungle area is not a surprise, since it is known that when the precedence of who is at the top of the food chain prevails in any ecosystem, it is a sign or an equivalent of healthy ecosystem. This program will offer physical challenges in a complex and natural environment no doubt about it, where our well prepared team of native indigenous Matses people will display their best role in guiding, instructing and taking care of every visitor in transit to the best of their capabilities.
