"A full-grown jaguar will be able to take any crocodilian, does not matter their species, a Nile or Orinoco croc, or any other cayman, even the black cayman, if the size of their head fits on its mouth and it can crush their skull with their single mortal bite."

A fully grown salty head alone weighs 200kg a lot more then any jaguar. At that size the croc would barely feel the bite of a jaguar Through overgrown scales and all that meat. Only way a jaguar is killing croc of that size is if the croc is tied and he had his way for some time to chew through. Cause he sure can't control that croc.

Even a tiger has tough time with a 4m croc. The battle between machali and a 12foot mugger lasted for hour and tigress ended up loosing canines. Although the tigress was really old and dental problems at that age is guaranteed.

I doubt even a massive tiger would be able to control and kill a croc at 6m length. May be a one who knows what he is doing would. A jaguar has no chance. A jaguar kills crocs that are 20-60kg. Not over a ton. I can give some chance for an massive jaguar for upto 4m but it seems physically impossible anything over that.
