National Geographic Video: Jaguar captures a Caiman
The Caiman is a close relative of the alligator, but most species are quite a bit smaller than North American Alligators. However, this video features the Black Caiman, (Melanosuchus niger), which can grow more than 5 m (16 ft) in length and weigh up to 1,100 kg (2,400 lb). The black caiman is the largest caiman species in the world and is found in the slow-moving rivers and lakes that surround the Amazon basin. It is remarkable how much the river in the documentary resembles the Choctawhatchee River in Alabama, the Altamaha River in Georgia or the Suwanee River in Florida.
