Fulton Jaguar – 1858

“Biological Survey of Texas, 1905” by Vernon Bailey, p. 164

One of the jaguars referred to by Vernon Bailey in his “Biological Survey of Texas” was reported killed on the Like Oak Peninsula in 1858. This would place it near Fulton and the Copano Bay Bridge.

This jaguar was one of many cats noted by naturalist H.P. Attwater, who investigated the Goldthwaite jaguar. You can visit the nearby Aransas National Wildlife Refuge today for a taste of what that habitat would have looked like.
