When we see a crocodile in water that raises the feeling of fear. But it is a question - who will win when a jaguar and caiman. A wildlife photographer was left stunned after watching a stealthy jaguar ambush and kill a yacare caiman during a brutal and lengthy battle.

The video shows that the big cat pouncing on the reptile in a sneak attack, sparking a fight to the death that few humans have ever witnessed. The young jaguar wrestled with the caiman for more than 20 minutes as it sank its powerful jaws into the reptile\’s neck and the back of its skull. The pair thrashing around in the Corixo Negro River in the Encontros das Águas State Park, Brazil.


The caiman desperately tried to break free during the death struggle, but was dragged into the jungle as the predator became prey for a much stronger beast. The big cat, known as ‘Mick Jaguar’ in the local area, even manages to drag the reptile underwater for a number of seconds. Jaguars usually use their stealth to their advantage by pouncing on their unwitting prey, although on this occasion the two predators were seen tussling after the jaguar only grabbed hold of the caiman’s lower jaw.
