Leopard uses the body of a python to play Tug of war with his friends

A mother jaguar and her cub were caught on camera playing a game of tug-of-war with a recently caught anaconda.

The footage was captured in the Pantanal, a natural region encompassing the world’s largest tropical wetland area in Brazil and neighbouring Bolivia and Paraguay.

A British tourist named Emma Greenwood photographed the event, telling Mail Online that, “Jaguars are very secretive when they get a kill and take it away into the bushes. But this adult and her cub were on the beach for quite a while.”

Game face on: The mother and cub were first spotted by the water’s edge, as they were on the hunt for anacondas

Dinner is ready: After catching an anaconda, the pair dragged the snake onto the sandy banks of the river

As there are only 15,000 wild jaguars left in South America, this is likely the same pair who enjoy a play-fight

Anacondas are some of the largest snakes in the world, with the green anaconda (Eunectes murinus) being, pound for pound, the largest. In this case, it’s likely a yellow anaconda, a slightly smaller cousin to the green anaconda, but they still have the capability of reaching over 15ft in length.

“It looked to me like the mother was tolerating the cub, which was playing around with it. Maybe she was letting the cub practice its killing technique.”

These jaguars need all the anaconda they can get with population trends decreasing as they face a number of threats, including habitat fragmentation and illegal killing.

The anaconda is one of the world’s largest snakes, a heavy-duty, muscular constrictor built to take down animals by squeezing them to death. However, this terrifying reputation doesn’t stop jaguars from hunting them. Jaguars have been known to take down large reptiles such as caimans, but seeing them with an anaconda is quite a rare sight.

These two top predators coexist in the Pantanal, the largest tropical wetland on the planet spanning an estimated 75,000 square miles across Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay. The region is a biodiversity hotspot and host to one of the world’s most robust jaguar populations, making it one of the best places to spot the big cats. Giant otters, cabybaras (the world’s largest rodent), ocelots, giant anteaters, and the biggest parrot on Earth also call this unique place home.
