Not only famous for its high-speed chases, leopards are also extremely dangerous in stalking phases, silently ambushing prey.
The video filmed in Patanal N ational Park will show us the mischievousness and efficiency of the jaguar when hunting, with the prey also an animal that is not easy to eat.
Right from the opening sequence, we can see how much effort it takes to get close to the caiman, the jaguar.

With the feature of having the strongest bite force in the big cat family, the jaguar is experienced enough to use its strengths to attack the weak point of its prey, which is the cervical vertebra below the skull.
The vicious blow quickly knocked the caiman down, knocking it down instantly before being dragged ashore and eaten by the jaguar.
Although the caiman is a close relative of the infamous king crocodile and is also well known as a predator in the area, when faced with a jaguar that is too tall, it still has to accept the number. prey part.
