When jaguars and caiman come together, there is usually only 1 winner, but that doesn’t mean that the caiman will give it up easily. This battle took place in the Pantanal, in Brazil, and this caiman was a fighter! The jaguar, exhausted after the struggle underwater, came up with a better plan: just pin the caiman underwater and it will drown, which it did.
I am sure there was plenty of damage caused to the neck when the jaguar caught it, but ultimately, it was the water that got it.
