    Wow, I would have never thought that a Jaqur would stalk a Caimin like that. Cool video.

    For sure. When I watched the video I couldn't understand how the Jag almost instantly subdues the Caiman but from the slideshow you see where the Jaguar plants its bite. Jaguars are said to have the most powerful bite of all the cats.

    Cat rescue facility in Ca had one that broke a bowling ball in half by biting it. Jags have been spotted in Az wild

    I have watched this one before, surprised the snake did not immediately position itself to strangle the Jag, especially in the water. It looks like the Jag knows to stay behind the snake.

    This one is pretty wild, old but awesome to watch. There was a longer version with sound but could not find it. Wrong place, wrong time for the panther.

    As of a few years ago there were not any official sightings in the US. However in the past few years there have been numerous are numerous sightings in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. I believe that the Hags are out there . They just are too crafty to get caught.

    and when they discover the tremendous amount of food available in the form of wild hogs in Louisiana and across the south I expect them to extend their range to the east. if they can live in the swamps of central and south America I suspect they can survive in the swamps of the SE.

    there are so many trail cameras set up by hunters now that I suspect there will be more and more sightings
