The name 'jaguar' comes from a Native American word meaning 'he who kills with one leap.' Readers will see how these incredible cats live up to their name by stalking through the jungle and quickly springing on their prey. They will also find out how jaguars care for their cubs, how long they have existed, and what people are doing to prevent these cats from going extinct.
