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.

si, de hecho le puse algo de sangre saliendo del oido, porque a veces los jaguares matan asi, metiendo los colmillos por los oidos D:

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
