A jaguar is the best of all the wild cats.

I argue a lion is superior to a jaguar.

~Speed~

Lets first compare speed. The Lion can run up to 50 mph. [1] [2] The jaguar on the other hand only reaches 30 mph and it might (if the conditions are perfect) hit 40 mph. [3]

~Size~

Size is a very important role in success of a predator. The Jaguar weighs about 124 pounds. [4] [5] Tigers on the other hand weigh 330 pounds. [6] Another estimate says they are 265-420 pounds. [7] Due to the fact the lion is bigger and faster is will obviously be "better".

~Is a lion a good predator?~

The Lion is rates #2 on he most successful predators on discovery channels website. [8] The jaguar does not end up on the list. The Lion hunts some of the biggest prey and is very fierce. [8] Also as they work in teams this deems them very powerful hunters. [8]

~ Team work~

Lions generally hunt in groups (prides). [9] These groups form deadly tactics and attacks and their cooperation deems them one of the most deadly predators in the world. [9] jaguars are generally solo atnti-social animals. [10] This may be detrimental as if they encountered, the lion would call its buddies, the jaguar would lose. As I stated the Jaguar isn't in the top 10 list, whereas lions are. [8]

Conclusion:

The Lion is better.
