Crocodile: it’s what for dinner – at least for this jaguar.
Vimeo user tacydeeps takes viewers behind the scenes of a jaguar’s epic hunt in this video.
The sneaky clip starts with our hunter approaching his target submarine-style. Sadly, this poor crocodile doesn’t realize he is in the danger zone until it’s too late.
BAM! Like Emeril adding an aggressive dash of spice, the big cat hops onto the croc and refuses to let go. After a brief struggle, the jaguar is pawing back from whence he came with an impressive and scaly bounty in tow.
Makes those “gifts” your house cat leaves behind look a little less intimidating, eh?
