When do jaguars hunt for their food?
There is no exact time that they hunt. They will hunt when they are hungry, when and if an opportunity arises. They have more luck hunting at night because of the cover of darkness.
Jaguars need the ability to roam through a fairly large forest to hunt and find mates. But human activity and settlement tends to cut the forest up into smaller patches, making life harder for the jaguars. On top of that, farmers don't like it when the jaguars go after their animals, so they hunt, trap and poison jaguars.
