Rumble / Wild WildlifeThis incredible footage shows the moment a jaguar and caiman battle - after the fearsome cat jumps 10 feet from a tree onto the reptiles back.

Wildlife photographer Kevin Dooley, 58, watched as the jaguar "never failed to break its gaze" from the caiman swimming in the river below in Pantanal, Brazil.

After an hour of waiting, Kevin said the cat "which kept as quiet as anything for the entire time" then pounced on the caiman as it eventually swam towards the tree.

He said: "It was amazing to watch. The jaguar jumped into the water and wrestled with the caiman, eventually killing it.

This video was recorded 23rd August 2019.
