Gripping fight to death for anaconda’s latest squeeze

A PHOTOGRAPHER captured an epic fight to the death between an anaconda and a caiman — a member of the crocodile family — in the Amazon rainforest.

Kavin Dooley, 58, was in a boat in Pantanal, Brazil, when he saw the 29ft anaconda strangling the 6ft caiman.

He clicked away as the creatures fought for eight minutes, with the exhausted caiman clamping its jaws around the anaconda’s neck before it slithered away — leaving the stricken caiman to die.
