Most people are under the wide held belief that cats cannot swim and hate water.
This Jaguar was filmed at a zoo and uploaded by Vince Pinto. He recently uploaded it Imgur where is has gone viral with 4.5million views.
According to Wikipedia:
“Jaguars look similar to leopards but are usually slightly large and have behaviors that are closer to a tiger.
The jaguar has an exceptionally powerful bite, even relative to the other big cats. This allows it to pierce the shells of armored reptiles and to employ an unusual killing method: it bites directly through the skull of prey between the ears to deliver a fatal bite to the brain.”
(GREAT:One more nightmare to add to my collection)
They are nearly on the endangered species list as well.
In case you may think that this is a rare occurrence its actually easy to find videos on YouTube with cats swimming like the one below
