Call a reaction like that cat? The jaguar hunting skill lets it go down when the capybara touches the water and the paddle for safety

Pig-sized "rats" shot into the water before swimming to the other side.

Photographer Jeff Foott captured the drama on the Cuiaba River, in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

The 75-year-old woman from Jackson, in Wyoming, USA, said: "We have been waiting on our ship to hunt jaguars to appear long enough. I saw the movement and started shooting.

"The capybara made a good escape by diving from the bank into the water – the only injury he had was a claw scraping his nose.

"Jaguar has a hard time catching capybara because they can't swim.

"It's amazing to see a miss near – the jaguar is very close but Capybara is doing enough to escape."

Male Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world, weighing 10 and originating from South America.
