Jæmurs (pronounced jee-mer) are hybrids from male jaguars and female ring-tailed lemurs. Jæmurs frequently appear in the wild despite being the hybrid of two animals that are native to different continents. They are most common in Europe, Asia, Australia, mainland Africa, southern South America and northern North America. [1]

Jæmurs are able to purr like cats because they are a hybrid of jaguars (a cat that can't purr) and lemurs (an animal that can purr but not like a cat).
