During the Pleistocene, the range of the Jaguar ranged much farther north than in modern or pre-Columbian times. Today the most northern populations are found in the Sonoran Desert. Previously, before the arrival of Europeans, their range extended into the southern US, including areas of Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Temporal range: during the Early Pleistocene - Early Holocene epoch ( mya —10, years ago) (North America) The Pleistocene North American jaguar is an extinct ancestor of our modern American big cat.

It lived during the Pleistocene epoch ( mya —10, years ago) throughout all of America, for about a good million years. Notice the dot on the Tennessee/North Carolina line. I dug a little deeper and found this excerpt posted at The Fossil Forum.

It mentions jaguar fossils in Georgia. I found similar information here. Finally, I found this at Google Books: Pleistocene Mammals of North America.

It lists South Carolina, as Pleistocene jaguars in North America. book as Florida, Pleistocene jaguars in North America. book, and Tennessee. In fact, a fairly inclusive comparison of fossil jaguar remains from sites in North America with modern subspecies of jaguar found that the average late Pleistocene jaguar was roughly 15 percent larger than the average modern jaguar (Seymour ).

New finds of Pleistocene jaguar skeletons from Tennessee cavesAuthor: Edward McCrady. The Pleistocene epoch is a geologic epoch which began around Mya (Million years ago) and came to an end aro BP (Before Present).

It is characterized by lower sea levels than the present epoch and colder temperatures. During much of the Pleistocene, Europe, North America, and Siberia were covered by extensive ice sheets and : Caleb Strom. After the end-Pleistocene extinction event, Jaguars became extinct in the northern parts of their range until they were only left in the tropical forests of Central and South America.

The northern limit for this species today are the states of Arizona and New Mexico. A lyrical trek across the late Pleistocene/early Neocene landscape and the peopling of North America.

I think school age children would especially benefit from reading a book like this -- if only they can be pried away from their smart devices and computer games.

The fact that the history has it that people passed through the North of America to the South. It was and remains to be the earliest evidence that human factors are the major causes of extinction of large mammals. Clovis Hunters. Lack of many kill sites in North America in late years of Pleistocene triggered Martin's research on the theory.

About the Book These essays cast new light on Paleoindians, the first settlers of North America. Recent research strongly suggests that big-game hunting was but one of the subsistence strategies the first humans in the New World employed and that they also relied on foraging and fishing. tw PLEISTOCENE JAGUARS McCRADY ET AL, Examination of figure 97 shows that our fossils, while smaller, re- semble P.

Pleistocene North American Jaguar (Panthera onca augusta) was much larger than Jaguars today. It came to North America from Asia during the Pleistocene via the Bering Land Bridge and their range included virtually all of North and South America except for the extensive open grasslands, deserts, and mountainous areas.

There are two subspecies of prehistoric giant jaguars known to date; Panthera onca augusta, from North America, and Panthera onca messembrina, from South America (also known as the Patagonian panther). Both of them were active during the Pleistocene period, but went extinct about years ago, during the last Ice Age.

antiquity and prehistory of the Americas, study of the origins of the aboriginal peoples of the Americas. Archaeologists believe humans had entered and occupied much of the Americas by the end of the Pleistocene epoch, but the date of their original entry into the Americas is term "Paleo-Indians" is generally used to refer to early Native Americans up through the end of the Ice.

Panthera onca augusta, commonly known as the Pleistocene jaguar or simply the giant jaguar, is an extinct subspecies of the jaguar that was endemic to North America during the Pleistocene epoch ( mya–11, years ago).Family: Felidae. Bison antiquus (Bison antiquus Leidy, ).

Order: Artiodactyla. Family: Bovidae. Dimensions: length – m, height – m, weight – 1, kg. Temporal range: During the later Pleistocene epoch, betweenyears ago (North America) Bison antiquus, sometimes called the “ancient bison”, was the most common large herbivore of the North American continent for over ten.

Temporal range: during the Pleistocene epoch ( mya —11, years ago) (North and South America) Panthera onca mesembrina, commonly known as the Pleistocene South American jaguar, is an extinct subspecies of the jaguar that was endemic to North and South America during the Pleistocene epoch ( mya —11, years ago).

Bugs studied a book about the fictional version of this creature and read aloud a long list of animals it ate. Of course, real Tasmanian Devils don't eat everything in the animal kingdom, but the list of animals jaguars ate would include almost ever Pleistocene species around--deer, horse, tapir, peccary, llama, armadillo, and even turtle.

Despite its name, the American cheetah (genus Miracinonyx) was more closely related to pumas and jaguars than to modern slim, muscular, cheetah-like body can be chalked up to convergent evolution, which is the tendency for animals that pursue similar lifestyles and inhabit similar ecosystems—in this case, the wide, grassy plains of North America and Africa—to evolve similar.

We picked the jaguar as our logo because it is a top carnivore and necessary for ecosystem integrity in its range. We also selected it because recent research shows that jaguars once ranged much more widely in North America during the Pleistocene.

Jaguars are not just tropical or subtropical species, but temperate species as well. [ North America has become significantly drier during the New Pleistocene.

Certain parts of North and Central America have become desert and scrublands. Though this drying of the continent has forced many of the animals of the west and even drove some into extinction, life is extremely biodiverse on this continent.

The North American Western scrubland is a scrubland covering parts of what is. "From the Pleistocene to the Holocene by Charles Britt Bousman and Bradley J. Vierra sets the stage for a serious reconsideration of the archaeology of the Paleoindian-Archaic transition in North America.

The articles bring together a wealth of data--much of it drawn from the ‘grey literature’. The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a large felid species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the jaguar's present range extends from Southwestern United States and Mexico in North America, across much of Central America, and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina in South there are single cats now living within the Western United States, the.

The American lion (Panthera atrox) is an extinct pantherine cat that lived in North America during the Pleistocene epoch aboutto 11, years ago. Its fossils have been excavated from Alaska to Mexico.

Genetic analysis has shown that the American lion and the Late Pleistocene Eurasian cave lion (Panthera spelaea) are sister lineages. To most, the term “Megafauna” conjures up images of large African mammals, such as elephants, giraffes, rhinoceroses, and lions.

By comparison, today the largest land mammals in South America are wild camelids, tapirs, jaguars, and capybaras (Wilson and Reeder ).Yet, as recently as 10, years ago the landscape of South America contained remarkable beasts—massive mammals Author: Karen E.

Samonds. Darwin's evolutionary theories got a big boost when Othniel Charles Marsh assembled his North American horse fossils in the s. They showed the gradual (presumed linear) evolution of a small, multi-toed Hyracotherium (then known as Eohippus) into the larger, hoofed modern new fossils appeared, it became clear that the equid tree—which includes modern horses, zebras, burros, and.

All of Pleistocene planet Earth was teaming with mega-fauna, but Pleistocene North America was like Africa on steroids. Imagine a mother grizzly with cubs to protect. She had to deal with grey wolves and dire wolves, scimitar cats and saber-toothed cats, giant jaguars and giant lions, male grizzlies and giant short-faced bears.

Panthera onca mesembrina is an extinct subspecies of the jaguar that was endemic to southern South America during the Pleistocene epoch ( mya–11, years ago).

The fossils of this large felid from late Pleistocene localities in southern Chile and Argentina have been reported in to be remains of the American lion (Panthera atrox).

Pleistocene Mammals of North America by Bjorn Kurten, Elaine Anderson and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at During the American megafaunal extinction event aro years ago, 90 genera of mammals weighing over 44 kilograms became extinct.

The Late Pleistocene fauna in North America included giant sloths, short-faced bears, several species of tapirs, peccaries (including the long-nosed and flat-headed peccaries), the American lion, giant tortoises, Miracinonyx ("American cheetahs", not true.Traveling thousands of miles eventually throughout the Pleistocene scattering in all directions.

Now by the mid-Pleistocene the European jaguar went extinct. The earliest evidence we have of early man and jaguars together comes about 4, to 11, years ago where skeletons of early man and jaguars are found in the same place.
