    Jaguar Attacks a Yacare Caiman


    These stunning images show the 20-stone cat striking with lightning speed while the eight-foot reptile basks on a river island. The scene unfolded by the Cuiabá River in the Pantanal Wetlands of western Brazil.

    In a flurry of action the ferocious cat sinks its teeth and claws into the back of the leathery reptile before whisking it away in its jaws. The battle-scarred jaguar is well-known to biologists, who have nicknamed him [Mick Jaguar]. He is estimated to be seven years old and is almost blind in his right eye, probably due to battles defending his territory. Astonished photographer Justin Black, 39, said: [He lifted the 150lb caiman from the ground and trotted toward the water like it was a doggie bone. The fact he attacked from the water is astonishing, It was reminiscent of crocs attacking land animals in Africa]. Photos: Jaguar attacks a Yacare Caiman. (Photo by Barcroft Media)
