The Pelican by Dixon Lanier Merritt, 1879-1954 Until recently, the isolation of the Yucatán has meant that birds and animals continued to thrive here when development pressures pushed them out elsewhere. The "land of the turkey and deer" features such exotic natives as peccaries, tapirs, manatees, iguanas and jaguars. But a huge number of animals use the Yucatán as the tourists do - it's a prime spot for migrating birds and butterflies that rest or winter over in this diverse tropical land. According to Pronatura Peninsula de Yucatán environmentalists, almost a third of the bird species in the ancient land of the Maya are migratory - including most of the neotropical species whose sudden declines have caused worldwide alarm.
Jaguars feed on tapirs, peccaries, foxes, turtle eggs, rodents, even deer - but rarely man. They breed once a year with no fixed breeding season.

Because of the dwindling habitat, they are vulnerable to extinction in Mexico and Central America. If you're dying to see one up close, see the chapter on Campeche, we'll tell you where you can. The jaguarundi is the smallest cat, with a low-slung long body resembling a weasel.
