According to WWF researchers who study jaguars off the coast of the Brazilian Amazon, a population of jaguars has learned how to catch fish in the sea to survive. This is believed to be the first evidence the elusive creatures have been jumping in the sea to catch prey.
The Maracá-Jipioca Ecological Station island reserve, three miles off the northern state of Amapá, acts as a nursery for jaguars. The researchers collared three cats and set up 70 camera traps on the remote jungle island.
