Cockscomb Range

▪ mountains, Belize
      mountain chain in central Belize (formerly British Honduras), a spur of the Maya Mountains, extending east–west for about 10 miles (16 km). The highest elevation is Victoria Peak (3,681 feet [1,122 m]), near Dangriga (formerly Stann Creek). The mountains have stands of timber that, despite depletion, still constitute an economic asset. The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary at the eastern end of the range occupies about 150 square miles (390 square km) and has a sizable population of jaguars.
