That's How You Hunt Crocodiles! This Big Jaguar's Ferocious Attack Leaves The Prey No Chance...


It sits alone in a tree so if a deer walks under the jaguar it will leap out of the tree and kill it from above. The jaguar eats deer, rabbits, frogs, snakes, and monkeys. The jaguar hunts near rivers. When it sees a fish or turtles it will grab it right out of the water. It will use its strong teeth to kill its prey. The jaguar will go for the skull to kill its prey and go for more to eat. They have scrapers on the tongue to get the meat of the bones. They hunt alone and they will chase the prey into a river so the are easier to get.Unfortunately the population is going down. Cutting down trees is making the jaguar lose his home. There are only 15,000 jaguars left. They rarely attack humans, but they will stalk them to get them out of their territory.
