Video: Jaguar Kills Gator with a Single Bite


You might think that a jaguar wouldn’t be a good aquatic predator, but after watching this video, you might want to reconsider.

Jaguars are actually the most aquatic of all big cat species, and according to the narrator of this video “the riverbank is like a buffet line for jaguars.” This jaguar’s waterborne hunting skills were on full display as it stalked and killed a caiman. Aside from sneaking up on the caiman completely unnoticed, the big cat also killed the reptile with a single bit to the base of the skull. These deadly skills are what make the jaguar the king of the South American jungle.

Note: the video title said the reptile in question was a “crocodile.” However, it is most likely a caiman, an Alligatorid, given that this video was filmed in Brazil.
