Re: Huge Freakin' Snake!



Yes, true, the jaguar won the fight, but would you say that because of
a jaguar defeated a larger anaconda once this is the typical outcome
of the anaconda-jaguar match? More difficult is to extrapolate the
results of that fight to all ectotherm-endotherm fights. The fact that
pythons sometimes prey on leopards is evidence to the contrary. There
is a video of a small caiman defending itself well from a jaguar also
in youtube.

In any case, even with the jaguar winning, you see anacondas dwelling
along with jaguars. That may further indicate the result of the animal
face-off does not necessarily imply displacement of a species by the
other.
