A lone jaguar stalked when two antelopes rammed each other and rushed to attack. The jaguar jumped on the back of one of the two antelopes during the intense battle. The antelope that was suddenly attacked by the jaguar jumped back in surprise.
Overcome with victory, the remaining antelope attacked in a rush, knocking both the opponent and the remaining antelope. The jaguar was flung out of the battle, in pain and panic.
It ran away in flames. The decision to attack antelope while they were in combat was a bad decision.
Thought this was an opportunity, but unexpectedly met a disaster. The jaguar learned a valuable lesson about timing in this hunt. Next time, it won’t make this mistake again.
Antelopes are a group of herbivores of the order Even-toed ungulates, family Bovine (Bovidae) living in the continents of Asia, Africa and North America. Antelopes include species other than buffalo, cows, goats, and sheep.
The horned antelope of North America (also called antelope), although colloquially also from antelope, is not a member of the family Bovidae but rather belongs to the family Antilocapridae. True antelopes have horns that do not branch and never shed, while horned gazelles branch and change annually.
