However, life seems to be looking up for Lisa now as she is a columnist for the Daily Star and has published a book called Balls: Beyond Anxiety, Love, Light, Success.

Some facts about the Jaguar... The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a large felid species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas. Overall, the jaguar is the largest native cat species of the New World and the third largest in the world. This spotted cat closely resembles the leopard, but is usually larger and sturdier. The jaguar enjoys swimming and is largely a solitary, opportunistic, stalk-and-ambush predator at the top of the food chain. The jaguar is a compact and well-muscled animal. It is the largest cat native to the Americas and the third largest in the world, exceeded in size by the tiger and the lion. It’s also a beast on the road!! @jaguarusa #jaguar #jaguarusa #jaguarfpace #gratitude
