The Jaguar is a large carnivore that is featured in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors and Age of Empires III.

Age of Empires II Edit

Jaguars are large cat-like predators, and are found in tropical maps like Yucatán. Like the Wolf, they bear no food, but they are dangerous to Villagers. Villagers with the Loom upgrade and military units, however, can kill them easily.

Jaguars are often confused with leopards, another tawny, spotted cat. A distinguishing feature of the jaguar is that their spots have small black dots or irregular shapes within the rosette patterns. Jaguars are also stockier and have larger heads than leopards. Both jaguars and leopards have melanistic, or black, variants. Without spots, black jaguars can be differentiated from black leopards primarily by their stocky build. Both big cats, whether jaguars or leopards, black or spotted, are commonly, if mistakenly, called panthers.

Historically, jaguars ranged from the southern parts of North America down to the southern most tip of South America, but their ranges now are in central and northern South America. Jaguars enjoy a rare, unchallenged perch at the top of the wild food chain. In their South American habitat, they have no predators and few real competitors, apart from humans.

Janey the Pet Jaguar Edit

Pet Jaguars (known as Janey the Pet Jaguar) are available to all civilizations from treasures, and have a bonus attack against treasure guardians (but like all Pets, they do almost no damage to villagers).

The Aztecs can both send Pet Jaguars from the Home City, and train them from their War Chief (provided that the card "High Priest of Ixtlilton" has been sent). The Home City Card "Great Temple of Tezcatlipoca" makes Pet Jaguars better in combat, giving them +35% Hit Points and +35% damage.
