This is the heart-stopping moment a jaguar stalks a giant anteater - only to let it walk away completely unharmed.
Luke Massey and his partner Katie Stacey were floating on a rickety canoe through a cattle ranch in Pantanal, Brazil when they spotted the huge ant bear enjoying a drink.
But the animal had not seen the huge predator pursuing it from behind.
The couple, from Hertford, watched as the anteater turned away from the water and stared straight into the eyes of the jaguar.
But instead of leaping at its potential meal, the big cat sat and watched as its prey wandered off into the rainforest.
