@Wolverine
Very good surprise to see that you found good information, you are right Black caimans are the most dangerous crocodilian to humans in South America normally they attack at night, Orinoco crocodiles and American crocodiles normally stay away from humans. I am trying to find information of big crocodilians interactions with Jaguars with out any luck, I totally agree with you a big Black caiman, Orinoco crocodile or American crocodile 4 meters or larger can hunt and kill a Jaguar, the best spot with the largest population of Black caimans today is Guyana. I will contact a Crocodile specialist named Robinson Botero-Arias who is doing a research on Black caimans in Brazil, lets wait to see if he has good information of their interaction.
First picture is a big Black caiman killed in Brazil, second picture credit to Dante Fenolio with the next information attached We found a dead Black Caiman on a tributary of the Amazon in Peru. Even with some of he tail missing, the body still measured 5,3 meters (17,38 feet). The skull measured 31 inches in length.
