Important prey of Jaguars: A Friend named Jacabo Friera Acebal who worked a few years in Hato El Frio in the Venezuelan Llanos, he visited el Pantanal recently I asked  him the comparison of the size of Caiman yacaré from el Pantanal with Caiman crocodilus from Venezuelan Llanos. He told me that he saw a good number of yacares 2,5 meters or larger and the biggest one he  saw he estimates measured 3 meters long he took a picture of the biggest one attached, very few caiman crocodilus from los llanos grow over 2,40 meters long.

That's exactly what Paulo and I thought as well. The largest we saw we estimated to be around 10 feet.
They are also very dense and completely armoured and they seem to be adapting more armor right behind their heads that is where they even have bigger scales.
The best way to tell their girth is actually by their tales, the thicker the tail the heavier the caiman according to Paulo.

They are everywhere btw, my favorite shots of them are when you boat past the dense floating foliage and you see them sitting deep inside,  it looks so cool.
