An opportunity for testing multiple paternity in a wild Jaguar (Panthera onca)
Keywords:Felidae, Paternity test, Multiple paternity, Road kill, Amazon
AbstractWe performed a paternity test for three cubs from one wild female jaguar (Panthera onca). The opportunity for this study was generated by an accident involving a vehicle collision with a pregnant jaguar in the central Amazon. The cubs are polyzygotic triplets and were found to have been sired by the same male. Here, we also provide an overview and discuss several aspects of jaguar reproduction.
