Jaguar on two small ranches in southwestern Brazil had a density of about one animal per 25 sq km. Females ranged over at least 25-38 sq km and males over twice that much terrain. The ranges of females overlapped, and the range of a resident male included the ranges of several females. Jaguar and puma ranges also overlapped, but each species favored parts not much used by the other. Day-and-night radio tracking revealed precise travel and activity patterns of two female jaguar. The social system of jaguar is in most respects similar to that of other large solitary cats such as puma, leopard, and tiger.
