Photographer Paul Donahue spotted a large male jaguar hidden in thick grass, stalking a nearby group of caiman yacaré, a crocodile relative native to South America in central Brazil's Tres Irmãos River. The largest of South America's cats, jaguars are good swimmers and regularly prey on fish, turtles, and caimans. They also eat larger animals such as deer, peccaries, capybaras, and tapirs.
The jaguar grabbed the yacaré first with its right front paw, then bit the reptile’s back a little below the head. The predator then quickly adjusted its bite to the base of the yacaré’s skull—the manner in which a jaguar normally kills—then wrestled the yacaré into a dragging position and headed back across the inlet. The jaguar carries off his prize, which took just a few seconds to capture.
