Wow - beautiful thread here - thanks Zoe for that last info- Never knew all this mythology about the jaguar! Don't think this is included in that article -
These beautiful and powerful beasts were prominent in ancient Native American cultures. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means "he who kills with one leap."
Unlike many other cats, jaguars do not avoid water; in fact, they are quite good swimmers. Rivers provide prey in the form of fish, turtles, or caimans—small, alligatorlike animals. Jaguars also eat larger animals such as deer, peccaries, capybaras, and tapirs. They sometimes climb trees to prepare an ambush, killing their prey with one powerful bite.

Infinito Gold wants to destroy Costa Rica's rainforests for mining gold. Costa Rica said no so now Infinito Gold is actually suing Costa Rica. This is completely unbelievable that they are suing a country because they want to destroy a natural ecosystem for profit. Please sign this important petition! Thank you!
