Musilli, Paul. (1987). The importance of the jaguar and the cayman in South American iconography, religion, cosmology. -- Lambda Alpha Journal of Man, v.18, p.47-56.

Abstract

Author argues that the jaguar is more important -- at least more visible as South American mythical animal. However, the cayman and jaguar both occupy an important place in world literature in both ancient and present South American cosmology, iconography, and religion.
