When photographer Chris came to know that a jaguar spotted near Corixo de Camino, he rushed to see the big cat.
But what he witnessed was unbelievable.
He captured a jaguar and a caiman fighting on the Three Brothers River in Mato Grosso, Brazil.
The caiman fought with the big cat for around 20 minutes before the big cat dragged the reptile across an open beach into thick cover.
The photographer wrote in a Facebook post: “Over the next hour we followed the cat and watched at close range as she charged unsuccessfully on a small group of capybara. Moments later she was walking through an open stretch of water when she pounced on the biggest yacare caiman I have ever seen during all my time on the river in Pantanal.”
“After a long struggle, she immobilised the giant reptile with the trademark jaguar bite to the back of the skull, and then dragged the huge carcass for over twenty minutes across an open beach into thick cover.
During the struggle, I shot an incredible variety of pictures, almost 50GB in total, of a predation (animal attack) sequence I have been obsessed with since I first visited this magical place over five years ago.”
The pictures of the dramatic fight between the jaguar and the caiman have now gone viral, leaving people stunned.
The moment was definitely was a once-in-a-lifetime moment. The photographer said he was thrilled to witness such a moment as we don’t see such things every day.
He said: “Whatever I may see in my future endeavors, my hope is that this creates greater awareness for the love of the mesmerising natural world we still have left. I hope this can help inculcate in people across the oceans the critical need for the preservation of our unique and fragile planet. This will be a spectacle I will cherish forever!”
