Jaguar Ambushes a Caiman Crocodile Basking in the Sun


Jaguars are beautiful creatures, like all of the big cats. Their markings are mesmerising and they are famed for their stealth and prowess.

We’ve all seen many hunting scenes of big cats thanks to the huge variety of fantastic natural history programmes available. But, this footage is definitely one of the best clips we’ve seen!

A jaguar silently swims through the water up to an unsuspecting caiman, and then leaps into action. Before the caiman knows what is happening, the jaguar sinks its teeth into its prey and swims away with it. Wow!

Make sure you take a look at these wild lions and leopards photographed within inches of the lens after the video.
