  1. Onza

    In Mexican folklore, the onza is a legendary cat species.


  1. Onza

    The Onza is claimed to be a feline species similar to a cougar. It is a cryptid – a creature whose existence has been claimed but not proved. The term has also been used to refer to the jaguarundi. In 1938, and again in 1986, cougar-like animals shot in Sinaloa were identified as onzas. The only viable specimen to have been examined was contributed by a rancher named Andres Murillo. In January 1986, he shot what he thought was a jaguar attacking him. It proved not to be a jaguar, and he brought it to Vega, who owned a nearby ranch. It was a female weighing 60 lb. The body excluding the tail was 45 inches long, and the tail was 23 inches. The cat had the appearance of a cougar with a very long, thin body and long, thin dog-like legs. Deer had been found in its stomach, indicating that it had eaten recently. Vega told Murillo that the specimen greatly resembled the onza his father had shot in the 1970s, the skull of which he still had. These animals were much like cougars but had lighter frames with longer, striped legs, longer ears, and a longer tail. Researchers from Texas Tech University examined a frozen onza corpse in the 1990s and concluded that it was most likely a genetic variant of the cougar, but not a distinct species. DNA testing has shown that specimen to be a puma, with no significant difference between it and any other puma.
