Jaguar vs Caiman?



It would take a large black caiman to kill a jaguar in water, and as well as on land near the river. Jaguars are the strongest of all wild cats, with the biggest canines and biggest jaws.

Anaconda vs Siberian tiger?



It takes a 8 meter anaconda to kill a male siberian tiger on land. In water, the anaconda can easily drown the siberian tiger.

A 8 meter or larger anaconda can kill any big wild cat, including a jaguar. But if gets serious, the anaconda can get destroyed in a bite. The bite of a jaguar produces 2000 psi of force, which is strong enough to break a turtle's shell. It is about two times the strength of a siberian tiger's bite.

actually if the snake doesn't throw a good ambush it will probably retreat..being as heavy bodied as it is....it isnt very maneuverable on land.....and considering how delicate a snakes skull is ......it wont survive a lot of punishment to its head.....(which it will be probably throwing at the cat as a means of defense)

Expertise

I have a vast knowledge on animals of all kinds, and can provide a good answer to any hypothetical match-up that you may have. Reptiles are my speciality, although any question will be answered. I have a credible amount of knowledge on big cats, bears, reptiles of all kinds, dogs, almost any animal. However I am not fond of questions that involve prehistoric animals as such questions cannot be answered with any amount of certainty, but again any question deserves an answer.

Experience

I have worked with animals since I was a small boy, as of right now I am the proud owner of several large, and exotic pets, including large constrictors, monitor lizards, crocodilians, and a Serval. Simply working with these animals has given me knowledge you can't learn in a book.

Education/Credentials
I will admit I do not have a degree in zoology, I have worked at a reptile sanctuary for abused crocodilians for seven years, and have kept exotic pets such as monitors and servals since I was ten.
