And I really don't know if the Big Male and experienced Jaguar is capable of killing the big Crocodile or Alligator like Salt water corcos , Nile Crocodiles and American Alligators. We have seen great footage and photos of Caiman hunt by Jaguars.. even big size Caiman are not safe.. The plus point of Jaguar is, They are most capable hunter inside water compared to any other big cats.

Would like to know your views.. Please be gentle during conversation .. this is not your favorite animal contest... so don't go mad.. remain unbiased with logical arguments.
Jaguars prey on large Caiman yacare and Caiman crocodilus with larger individuals a little over 2,50 meters long and 60 kilograms, my personal opinion is that they have no chance in hunting big crocs over 4 meters long they find in their natural habitat (Orinoco crocodiles, American Crocodiles or Black caimans) they are too much for a Jaguar. I think they are capable of hunting crocodiles up to 3 meters long.
