Patagonian Panther by HodariNundu Patagonian Panther by HodariNundu
Los cóndores no pueden esperar a que la gigantesca pantera patagónica (Panthera onca mesembrina) les deje las sobras de su recien cazada presa- un milodonte.
La pantera patagónica (tambien llamada a veces pantera patagónica de cola corta, fue una subespecie de jaguar mucho mas grande que sus parientes modernos; probablemente alcanzaba los 200 kilos, siendo mas semejante al león que al jaguar moderno en cuanto a tamaño.
Aunque pueda parecer asombroso, hay evidencia de que el milodonte (con todo y su enorme fuerza, temibles garras y piel blindada) estaba dentro del menú de este depredador.
Al parecer, incluso en zonas de la Patagonia donde el jaguar no ha existido desde epocas prehistoricas, algunos pueblos tienen historias sobre ellos y palabras para designarlo, lo cual posiblemente sea una memoria cultural de cuando la pantera patagónica rondaba dichas regiones.

Condors can´t wait for the giant Patagonian Panther (Panthera onca mesembrina) to finish its meal (a freshly killed mylodont) and abandon the scraps to them.
The Patagonian Panther (also known sometimes as short-tailed Patagonian panther) was actually a jaguar subspecies much larger than its modern relatives; it could weigh up to 200 kgs being more similar to a lion than to a jaguar, size-wise.
As amazing as it is, there's evidence that the mylodont (despite its strength, heavy claws and armored skin) was indeed included in this predator's menu.
Apparently, even in regions of Patagonia where the jaguar hasn´t existed since prehistoric times, some tribes have stories about them, and words to call it, which suggests perhaps a folk memory of the time when the Patagonian Panther roamed those lands.

If this jaguar really was this big, it would have a disturbingly horrific bite.

y de la nariz y algunas veces la presion es tan fuerte que los ojos se salen de sus orbitas y yo he vistos toros de 800 kgs muertos con el craneo aplastado y las costillas rotas por el ataque de un jaguar que pesara entre 113 a unos 140 kgs como maximo

It made me remember about a history that a guide told me when I was travelling. It was about an anteater that "hugged" a cougar, and both died there. The cougar bited the anteater's neck and then died in the claws of his prey... Maybe the giant sloths could do the same with smilodons, jaguars...

Very likely... I guess they had to take them by surprise.

Some jaguars can take down anteaters by surprise, but I don't think that smilodons would hunt giant sloths very often, because they had more "easy hunt" animals, like toxodons.

Amazing work. I'm not surprised Jaguars lived in Patagonia. Their range is quite large nowadays.
