The jaguar is Guyana’s national animal. Guyana’s Coat of Arms features two of these strong and courageous big cats which are found in the jungles of Guyana. This amazing video was filmed in January, 2023 by Guyanese citizen, Melly Allicock, in the South Central Rupununi Savannahs of Guyana. Ms. Allicock relates that she was traveling to the Marudi Mountains from Lethem when she came face to face with the cross jaguar. Instead of panicking, the brave citizen pulled out her mobile phone and filmed this amazing, close up encounter with the fierce, roaring, big cat.
