VIDEO: Jaguar turns tables on attacking caiman in Brazil


Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) A caiman attacked a jaguar in a Brazilian river and appeared poised to dine on big cat when the feline pulled off a shocking upset victory.

A video posted to Twitter by the Araras Eco Lodge‏ shows the caiman, an alligator cousin, attacking the jaguar from behind in the Pantanal wetlands.

The combatants disappear underwater for a moment, with the caiman seemingly seizing the upper hand, but the animals soon come back into sight with the jaguar's jaws latched onto the now-helpless reptile.

Chris Brunskill, a British wildlife photographer who captured snapshots of the encounter, said the jaguar spent the next 20 minutes dragging the caiman into the woods.
