There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

"Eyes bigger than her belly? This young female jaguar appeared to have bitten off more than she could chew with this huge jacare caiman crocodile this morning, but her tenacity combined with immense bite force and especially long canines helped her dispatch the reptile without too much trouble. All that remained was dragging the dead weight up the river bank and into the undergrowth."

"A scaly snack. This caiman crocodile would have far outweighed this female jaguar but after killing it with a bite to the base of the skull - jaguars have particularly long canines and a bite force calculated to be greater even than lions & tigers - she proceeded to drag the weighty reptile up the river bank, over a fallen log and into the undergrowth. We estimated the caiman would have tipped the scales at more than 80kg."

Lisa Antell: " Capi and her ~9 month old cubbie, Bara, contemplating going for a swim in the river while many fans watched from the boats. Capi is a stunning female jaguar in the Pantanal, well-known for her sensational leaps from trees into the water when hunting caiman!

In the video description the poster says it was a bush dog but I think in english could be this one you mentioned, here in portuguese the names are different and might get confused thats why the scientific name is there.

Video from 2014

IOP

Cerrado jaguars with cattle kills in farms.

Note just like some collared individuals in the video captured by IOP there's a big Cerrado male with collar at 2:24min. I wonder how heavy he was.

Jaguar predates 3 adult female Buffalos in the municipality of Puerto Parra in 2015.


''Three buffaloes were found dead with signs of predation that coincide with the presence of a jaguar in the area. Comprehensive measures are required to prevent such events.

Three adult buffalo carcasses were found in a buffalo breeding farm on the shores of the department of Santander. The owners and employees of this farm, located in the jurisdiction of the municipality of Puerto Parra, were stunned by the discovery of the partially deprecated bodies. Although it is true that the floodable areas of the Magdalena Medio are the natural habitat of the jaguar, this is the first time that a situation like this has been reported in the municipality of Puerto Parra.

Because of the type of injuries and the size of the animals affected professional experts confirmed that the predator was a jaguar. Precisely within the diversity of wild cats present in Colombia, the jaguar is the only one capable of knocking down and killing an animal the size of a buffalo.''



Buffalo slaughtered and Comsumed by Jaguar.

Jaguar predation on Feral Pigs in Pantanal.

Feral Pigs ( Monteiro pigs ) in Pantanal.

https://oncafari.org/2013/10/16/feral-pi...ortuguese/

"Usually, exotic and invasive species are a major threat to native wildlife: they compete with local species, introduce parasites and diseases, and hinder the ecological regime. But a rare case occurred in the Pantanal. Here, an introduced mammal has helped the conservation of local wildlife" - Environmental News Network

Pigs were introduced to the Pantanal about 200 years ago. Usually the introduction of exotic animals is always bad for biodiversity and the local ecosystem. Especially pigs, due to their voracious appetite and the habit of eating roots. They also carry diseases, spoil plants and small animal populations. Despite all this, this did not happen in the Pantanal.

Until 1967 commercial hunting was a threat to the biodiversity of the Pantanal. The introduction of pigs alleviated the hunting of native animals, giving the chance for populations to rise again. Many in the Pantanal, until today, prefer to hunt these fertile pigs instead of wild animals, because of the ease of finding them, their large numbers and because they provide a good amount of meat. Hunting monastery pigs is part of the culture of the Pantanal.

As in the Ecological Refuge Caiman hunting is strictly forbidden we could imagine that the population of these monastery pigs would get out of control, but this does not happen because the jaguars keep this population balanced.''


See below a video of a monster pig feeding on a bull carcass, killed the night before by a jaguar.
