The video clip, which went viral on the internet, shows a jaguar attacking a caiman in Brazil's Pantanal wetlands. 

Known for its killer instinct, the jaguar then wades through the water quietly and sneaks up on the caiman only to deliver a lethal bite to the reptile's central nervous system, which renders it defenseless.

The video was shot by Kedar Hippalgaonkar, of Berkeley, California, who was vacationing with his wife in Brazil.
