Facts

Brutus was so named as he has short legs with great muscle mass. The team was able to follow the entire process when he lost a large end portion of his tail (from the time of fracture, to the rotting of the area, and the final loss of the dead tissue). He had a very ugly cut on his lip at his last sighting, possibly indicating an intense fight with another jaguar.
