The Caiman Hunters: Jaguar, Brazilian Wetlands

The carnivorous and ever wary jaguar is usually hidden deep in the forest, never revealing its true nature. However, during recent dry seasons, they have been spotted in the Pantanal wetland in Brazil. Using unmanned cameras and ultrasensitive cameras, our film crew embarked on a major project to record these jaguars. Witness an amazing Jaguar hunt that climaxes in a single deadly bite.
