I should probably feed my cat, soon and often.

"That's a meal that he's taking away to have at his convenience". Yep, my cat thinks of me in much the same way.

I want to move like that in the water. Jaguars are amazing.

Walking along the river bank for a jaguar is like us scanning a buffet line.

Words to live not die by.

Is it just me, or does he look sort of smug as he turns to carry his dinner off to "enjoy at his convenience"?

Jaguars are pretty relentless. Here is one attacking a large anaconda.

He does seem to have a certain swagger after the kill, doesn't he?

Jaguars can take any riparian vertebrate? Does that mean there's a nematode-oceraptor that can whup its ass?

I see this on a small scale with my cats and geckos. I spend lots of time on gecko rescue missions.

There's a whole other layer of fun here if you pretend that the commentator is actually a retired gymnast or figure skater describing a routine at the Olympics.

My cats LOVE to watch YouTube, but uh, I won't be showing them this one.

at 1:31 he says "This guy's gooood," which I appreciate because it immediately makes me imagine the guy narrating a hundred other jaguar hunting videos where he's like, "wow, this dude is shit. just a fucking awful jaguar. fuck. what a fucking Trash Cat. go home! GO HOME, ASSHOLE, YOU ARE BAD" and the jaguar's like "Christ, dude, lay off, I'm hunting a damn bird."

This totally reminds me of a cat we had when I was growing up. She never begged for food, except when we had salmon. On salmon nights, she would stand right next to the kitchen table, meowing until one of us got up to bring a bit of salmon to her bowl. Her triumphant trot as she followed the salmon-giver to her bowl was pretty much exactly the same as the jaguar's post-kill gait here.

I hate how they sensationalized the youtube title by getting the reptile wrong. :( But I looooooove watching felines hunt!

I'm pretty amazed that there aren't any caymans (caymen? cay*?) that think, Hey, if I swim under the water I can bite Mr Fancy Pants in his thoroughly unprotected furry undercoat.

But no, they just want to loll about like a party of German tourists at a Mediterranean hotel.

I've always been intrigued by the fact that no matter the variant of a wrestle-toy that I buy for him, my cat always knows exactly where the notional neck of his prey would be. That must be some deep down programming.

Ooh, just look at all you fancypants people with your hunting cats and playful cats and smart cats. Not like my couch potato kitten, all sleek and black and dim. Hunt? Play? Think? That's all a con!

that put to shame my geriatric cat's encounter with a house centipede the other day. the cat was like, 'look, that's too many legs, okay?'

Look at that thing WALK. It is just sleek! My cats have always had some of that, but that is just grace with every step.

Since that killing bite goes straight for the back of the neck, I imagine Mr. Jaguar would be more than a little thrown off by anything without a neck to break or a windpipe to crunch. I would love to see him go head to hear with a giant slime mold.

Oh well, back to taunting my cat for his inability to bring down so much as a moth...
