Many people are aware of the jaguar nicknamed “El Jefe” that was caught on video by a camera trap just last February, but recently it seems like there’s another boss in town. Last week, a possible second jaguar was caught by a trail camera roaming through Fort Huachaca, a U.S. Army installation in the Huachaca Mountains, according to the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Scientists are looking into more detail about this big cat and have yet to confirm that it is not the same jaguar as the one that was previously spotted in the state. The AZGFD says preliminary indications suggest the jaguar is a male. Read more about this spotting in The Washington Post.
