"Jaguars and Jellyfish" Letter of the Week

  We will be learning about jaguars and Jellyfish this week. The jaguar is the third-largest cat in the world and the biggest cat in the Americas. Jaguars are excellent swimmers and catch fish, turtles, and caimans to eat.  Jaguars have the strongest bite force of all the cats and the fifth strongest in the world. Black jaguars are called panthers. Jellyfish are invertebrates and are not actually fish.  There are over 2,000 different species of jellyfish.  A group of jellyfish is called a bloom. Blooms can have over 100,000 jellyfish. The lion’s mane jellyfish can grow up to 120 feet long.
