Rare video of Jaguar & Leopard Mating



 Jaguars & Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars.

Female leopards can give birth at any time of the year. They usually have two grayish cubs with barely visible spots.

Jaguars are polygynous meaning that males mate with more than one female during the breeding season. Mating usually increases from December through March. Throughout the mating season, females will call loudly to attract males into their territory. Females generally give birth to between 2 to 3 cubs, following a 91 -111-day gestation period. Once the cubs are born, females will not tolerate a male in her territory, being very protective of the cubs. 

The young are born with closed eyes but open them after 2 weeks. They are weaned at the age of 3 months but remain in the birth den for 6 months before leaving to accompany their mother on hunts. The young remain with their mothers for up to 2 years of age. Females become reproductively mature between 12 and 24 months, and males when they are 24 to 36 months old.




Anyone know what the bite is for/about?

I've noticed...most big cats have the same mating behavior.


There's a video on YouTube of lions mating...once finished, the male nips at the nape of her neck, she turns to bite at him....she then, proceeds to lay on her back and roll around....literally the SAME EXACT WAY as in this video.
