Capybara & Caiman - “The Prey and the Predator”

Category: Nature

I was fortunate to shoot a very unique picture of the “Prey and the Predator” at the Cuiaba River, North Pantanal. It is a known fact that capybaras attract most predators like Jaguars, Anaconda and Caiman; however I was surprised to spot a capybara and a huge caiman sitting together basking in the sun. I can't believe this even now, as how often we see the caiman making fierce attack on capybara.

Location: Cuiaba River, North Pantanal, Brazil
