Nature in action! Jaguar ambushes huge caiman and kills it with bite to skull in dramatic fight

Incredible photos show a dramatic 20-minute battle between a jaguar and a huge caiman on the banks of the Three Brothers River in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

The jaguar ambushed the caiman on Tuesday, September 26 and went for its throat as it thrashed about in the water to break free.

However, the jaguar proved too strong and ended the battle with a powerful bite to the caiman's skull, immobilizing it.

Photographer Chris Brunskill captured the rare moment. He shared his incredible experience on Facebook, saying he had followed the jaguar for about an hour until the ambush.

He wrote: "After a long struggle, she (the jaguar) immobilised the giant reptile with the trademark jaguar bite to the back of the skull, and then dragged the huge carcass for over twenty minutes across an open beach into thick cover."

He added that he took an incredible variety of photos totaling over 50GB. What an incredible moment to witness!
