Although you might think otherwise, a black coat is actually disadvantageous for a jaguar, despite them being nighttime hunters. The reason for this is that it’s much harder for most animals to spot a patterned figured amidst foliage, which is why most large cats have stripes and spots. However, studies have suggested that the black coloration in jaguars is linked to beneficial effects on their immune system, which might in part explain its prevalence.
