IT'S MICK JAGUAR (See Main Image): 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.

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.
