There is no doubt about the power of the great jaguar, the apex and most formidable predator in all America.

A really short video of a Jaguar, eating a Tapir. From here, it's in spanish: Misiones Online
Basically, it says that concerned over the care of the jaguars in Misiones(it's a province right in the north of Argentina) because of several deaths that happened in road accidents, the rangers were excited to see the results of one of the cameras they put in the Parque Nacional Iguazú, near an internal road and a few kilometres from the Iguazú Falls.
They put the cam tuesday noon and it was there until wednesday in the afternoon and "when we saw that part we were very excited because it's a beautiful specimen, and adult male in excellent condition, of a 100 kg".
They also said "you can see that the male hunted a tapir of good size and started to eat it near the camera".
"The idea of putting cameras inside the Park is precisely to capture the movement of the animals so we are able to intensify the protection for the different species".

Here is the video:




Sorry for the lame translation, but it's basically what the article says and those of you who don't speak spanish can understand it. 
It's amazing to see Argentinian Jaguars, see them in excellent condition and hopefully the can be better protected.

Got this new amazing video of Jaguar killing a caiman from facebook, I am surprised by seeing how efficiently and quickly jaguar kills caiman. Though caiman are deadly predator but they treat them like fish. I thing Jaguar are only predator which include other predator in his regular diet
Note: if you dont see playing button, then just click on it, it will start playing video. this video is inserted from facebook so it has some problem

It's a great video Sanjay. I'm always amazed at how easy it seems for them to take on such a dangerous competitor as a caiman.

Guate, do you understand portuguese? I know some people here that say they somewhat understand what they say, but for me, yeah I speak spanish but I never got around it. I just don't get what they're saying Grin
Anyway thanks for clarifying it.

Yes, I understand it, but that is because Spanish is my native language and these two (Spanish and Portuguese) are very similar (just like with the Italian), so is somewhat easy for me to understand them. Wink

They're quite skilled, with a specialized technique tackling caiman. Very impressive. Although, large black caiman are capable
of turning the table on them.
