‘After a few hours looking for jaguars near Porto Jofre we came across a female jaguar and her five-month-old cub, says photographer Arjan Jongeneel, from the Netherlands.

‘We followed these charismatic cats for some time as they walked on the banks of the river looking for a prey.

‘Soon, the mum and cub disappeared in the bushes, and after a few minutes, there was lots of noise from the dry leaves on the ground.

‘We waited patiently and after a few minutes mum appeared on the edge of the river, slid down from the two metre (6ft 6in) high riverbank into the water. The cub followed and also went into the river.’

Give it to me! Photographer Arjan Jongeneel says the mother eventually let go of the snake and the cub disappeared with it

‘Both jaguars crossed the river. During the crossing, we noticed that the mum had something in her jaws.

‘As we looked closely, we saw that it was a large yellow anaconda; about five metres long (16ft). Swimming to her mother, the cub grabbed the anaconda with her jaws.

Mr Jongeneel said the pair arrived on the beach on the other side of the river, with both of the jaguars hanging on to the anaconda and refusing to let go.

‘The battle started, and both mum and cub were hanging onto the yellow anaconda, not giving in. After a while. mum let go and the cub proudly and swiftly disappeared with its prey’.
