    "In the past, there have been reports of crocodiles killing leopards, but this is believed to the first time that the reverse scenario has been observed."

    Maybe this is revenge.

    "LabelKing preys on both."

    "Mommy, why aren't there any animals at the zoo?"

    "LabelKing."

    That's one hungry cat.

    This really isn't too surprising. The leopard's close cousin the jaguar quite commonly preys on caimans. I suppose it all depends on the relative sizes of the cat and the croc.

    But isn't the Jag bigger?

    Plus it tastes like chicken. Where's the payoff?

    Much stockier/more heavily built, and stronger. If leopards are cornerbacks, jaguars are linebackers.

    Not necessarily. Size of both varies considerably depending on range, sex and probably other factors. One hears claims of jaguars weighing 275 or 300 pounds, but they must be very, very exceptional. In Alan Rabinowitz' book Jaguar the adult jaguars in Belize that he drugged and weighed ranged between 118 and 140 pounds. This is very much in the same size range as the leopard. I was rather surprised at how small they were. Reportedly, they get the biggest down in the Mato Grasso country of Brazil.

    Haven't you ever started a fight just to see if you could win? Maybe he was exercising his prowess. More of a trophy than calories.

    EXACTLY. He was hanging around with the other leopards and one of them was like, "Hey, Jim, you know, you're always the one tagging the injured, sick, or aged Antelopes when we hunt. You're such a pussy."

    Jim shows the other lions just who's the pussy. And, he was smart enough to do it when the National Geographic people were close by.

    Jim: 1
    Other Leopards: 0

    Do you have a thing for Jaguars? I read a book about a woman in Belize that was doing research on them. I forget her name, although google would probably tell me pretty quickly. There's an outfit in brazil that's now guaranteeing Jaguar sightings in the wild. I'm considering it for the future, although probably not for my upcoming trip, since it would cut too far in to my budget and prevent me from staying down there as long as I want. I absolutely love them though. They're beautiful cats and amazing creatures.

    Fast forward to 6:01 to see a Tiger killing a rather large Crocodile.
