Should you ever have to encounter a jaguar on a nice trip through the tropical rainforests of South America, or due to the unfortunate bad luck of finding yourself in a jaguar enclosure in a zoo, then here are some tips you'll need to survive those big teeth and claws aimed towards you.


  1. Take precaution in the forest. The last thing you want is a jaguar leaping onto your back unexpectedly from a tree!
  2. Don't draw attention to yourself. If you see a jaguar that doesn't spot you, then don't disturb it.
  3. Back away slowly. If the jaguar spots you, avoid eye contact, this can be seen as a challenge.
  4. Don't run. You will be viewed as prey. Plus, jaguars are much faster than you.
  5. Ready yourself for an attack. If the jaguar charges at you, don't run, instead, hold your ground, wave your arms and shout, making yourself seem bigger and more dangerous than you really are.
  6. Fight back as hard as you can. If the jaguar does not stop charging, poking it in the eye or punching it on the nose could well discourage it from pressing its attack.
  7. Protect the back of your head if the jaguar does not stop. The jaguar is a very unusual killer. Rather than biting the neck, it goes for the back of the head to pierce the brain and kill the prey. Protecting your head could help you survive, although this cat has very strong teeth.


  • Jaguars are said to bite harder than tigers and lions!
  • Black panthers are a type of black jaguar, for the record.
  • You are more likely to be struck by lightning than attacked by a jaguar.They very rarely attack humans.
  • Pay attention.
  • Don't climb a tree, like black bears, jaguars are excellent climbers and will catch up to you easily.


  • Never go near cubs either. Mothers will be extremely defensive.
  • Never approach a wild jaguar.Use camera lenses instead.
