MAIN IMAGE:  IT'S MICK JAGUAR:  This big cat could be 'Mick Jaguar' as it yawns and sticks its tongue out like the Rolling Stones front man.  The three year old jaguar caught the eye of a waiting photographer as it took a massive inhalation of breath in the Pantanal, Brazil.<br />
<br />
Amateur photographer Tuomas Kirjavainen, from Finland, said the yawn was not actually a sign of tiredness but the male was actually getting as much oxygen into its body in readiness for hunting.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
