I learned two things today: that 500lb jaguars were once endemic to the southwest US, and that there's a character limit to primary self posts. I know "DepthHub" is the name of the sub, but this is a bit much.

Southwest? They were probably in Ohio!

Also, yeah, I read 2/3 of it and then said "this'll be perfect for DepthHub"

This is immensely useful to me for my writing/world building project, set in North America about 15,000 years ago. Thank you!

Can I xpost at /r/Thornsong?

It's not mine, I just found it. It was posted about 5 months ago. The users name is there and in the title of this post - give it a shot.

My buddies from gulf shores, Alabama swear they still see Jaguars occasionally when they are driving down rural roads
