Why Does It Matter If Jaguars become extinct?

It matters because if jaguars became extinct there would be many more animals such as adult caimans, deer, capybaras, tapirs, peccaries, dogs, foxes, and sometimes even anacondas. However, the cat will eat any small species that can be caught, including frogs, mice, birds, fish, sloths, monkeys, and turtles. Also if the jaguar becomes extinct then the jaguars predetor will also become extinct because there is no jaguars to feed on.
