Hunting a Capybara | Big Cat Week

Hunting a Capybara | Big Cat Week


NARRATOR: A male capybara
might look docile, but they’re expert swimmers
with razor sharp teeth. The jaguars– they
don’t realize that there’s a capybara over there. NARRATOR: The jaguars are now
so secretive that the only way to see how they hunt
is with remote cameras. We can see that these sisters
are really, really different. Especially when it’s
their hunting time, they show us one is
much more dominant. She go forward. And the other one
is more cautious. But you can see that
she’s trying as well. She’s not laying down, looking
to the sister do all the job. She’s swimming. She’s chasing the capybara. NARRATOR: They’ve never known
life apart from one another, and seem to be figuring
it out together. They’re helping each other. But, obviously, you can
see that one is much more dominant than the other one. They are still learning. They didn’t have their
moms around to teach them. And it’s not an easy position. They’re becoming jaguars. And they’re learning that. NARRATOR: Working
as a team, they’ve passed this critical test. But it’s clear that one is
a better hunter, leaving the other to follow her lead. They both need to be able
to fend for themselves if they are to
survive in the wild.
