Brasília: A video has gone viral on the web, which shows a Jaguar stalking a crocodile and launching a fierce attack on its 'prey'. The video has been filmed on the sandbank of Cuiaba River in Brazil's Pantanal Wetlands.
In the video, the Jaguar is seen sailing silently across the Cuiaba river and leaping on to the crocodile, which was basking in the sun.
The unusual attack came as a big surprise for the resting crocodile, which gave up the fight within few minutes.
The video shows that the Jaguar attacks the crocodile from behind and sinks its teeth and claws into the back of the reptile.
As the crocodile tries hard to get through the jaws of its predator, the Jaguar within a flash lashes onto the neck of the reptile, eventually killing it.
The big cat then swims across the river with the crocodile's body.
Interestingly, reports say that the Jaguar is 7 years old and is almost blind in his right eye.
