Field biologists often trek to remote areas to conduct research on exotic plants and animals. Scientific articles often result, but only rarely do the biologists produce intimate stories of their experiences, personal as well as scientific. Jaguar is one of the few such accounts. After completing graduate school, Rabinowitz moved to Belize, a small country on the Caribbean coast of Central America, to study jaguars, the least known of the large cats. The tale spun by Rabinowitz instructs us about Jaguar biology and the biologisthis motivations (to learn and converse), his reverence for life (human and nonhuman), his character strengths and flaws, and most of all his adventures as a field biologist.
