Can you adopt the jaguar?
I have finished story mode with both Jessica and David, adopted a orangutan and a hyena, done everything you can do in the game, but i can not find the jaguar since i tamed it to let me into the village! Does anyone know if it is possible to adopt it? I think it is because if you hover over the mood bars on a hyena it mentions how to care for a jaguar ( its the castaway version of a cat), and why would they bother having the leaf as a story reward if you can only use it once? Does ANYONE know anything about this?? :confused:

As far as I know, you can't (although it's a "kitty", lol) - only orangutan and a hyena.

I've added Mata to my family but it didn't do anything, couldn't be interacted with.

When Playing the game I only adopted Mata - the orangutan. I didn't know you could adopt a Hyena but I never tried - I wizzed through on Easy mode on a very wet day

Maybe you could try in FreePlay?

Truly adopting Mata, while is possible using various hacks, is pointless. She is impossible to interact with.

I have found that the only way a jaguar can be adopted AND interacted with is if you open the file of the jaguar in SimPE and change it from "cat" to "large dog." Even then, you'll have to put up with the jaguar barking, and its hind feet sinking into the ground during some actions.

However, in those circumstances the jaguar can be interacted with and owned.

I'm still upset we can't adopt her.
The other pets struck no interest with me, only her.

Hey guys!
I want to adopt jaguar too. I found some site that has quide how to. But i don't know if it's possible to adopt jaguar only in the story mode or also in freeplay mode. I tried in storymode and it works, but I couln'd get it in freeplay mode ( I want it in freeplay )

And there are more than one jaguar to adopt. They are:
- Mata (there are 2 Matas, female and male)
- Hau
- Tapu
- Hakari

Hope that helps you all
