Jaguar and Prey



Who knew that jaguars were such good swimmers? This guy glides along like a ninja, and the caiman on the shore has no idea until it's too late. Luke Dollar of National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative narrates footage taken in Brazil's Pantanal wetlands. I saw the prey referred to as a crocodile elsewhere, which made me wonder whether caimans were alligators or crocodiles. According to Wikipedia, a caiman is a "alligatorid crocodylian," which means yeah, it's one of them. (via Viral Viral Videos)
