Pantanal Jaguar - Panthera onca palustris
The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a big cat, a feline in the Panthera genus, and is the only Panthera species found in the Americas. The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The jaguar's present range extends from Southern United States and Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina. A study of the Jaguar in the Brazilian Pantanal region found average weights of 100 kilograms (220 lb) and weights of 136 kilograms (300 lb) or more are not uncommon in old males. A short and stocky limb structure makes the jaguar adept at climbing, crawling and swimming. The head is robust and the jaw extremely powerful. The jaguar hunts wild animals weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 lb) in dense jungle, and its short and sturdy physique is thus an adaptation to its prey and environment.

Green Anaconda - Eunectes murinus
Eunectes murinus is a non-venomous boa species found in South America. It is the heaviest known snake species. The term anaconda (without further qualification) often refers to this species, though the term could also apply to other members of the genus Eunectes. Eunectes murinus is found in South America east of the Andes, in countries including Colombia, Venezuela, the Guianas, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, the island of Trinidad and as far south as northern Paraguay. Anacondas live in swamps, marshes, and slow-moving streams, mainly in the tropical rain forests of the Amazon and Orinoco basins. They are cumbersome on land, but stealthy and sleek in the water. Their eyes and nasal openings are on top of their heads, allowing them to lie in wait for prey while remaining nearly completely submerged. The Green Anaconda is one of the world's longest snakes, reaching more than 6.6 m (22 ft) long. Reports of anacondas 35–40 feet or even longer also exist, but such claims need to be regarded with caution as no specimens of such lengths have ever been deposited in a museum and hard evidence is lacking. Although the reticulated python is longer, the anaconda is the heaviest snake. The longest (and heaviest) scientifically recorded specimen was a female measuring 521 cm (17 ft 1 in) long and weighing 97.5 kilograms (215 lb).

The jaguar should win this fight.

One of those deadly skull bites to the relatively slow snake would ensure victory. Even in shallow water, I would favor the cat, due to the comfort in aquatic environments.

Only in deeper water would I favor the snake.

The snake because of his strangle method and power. the snake could drag the cat to the water and constrict it

Would be hard to do without ambush, IMO.

I agree
I can't see Anaconda dragging a Jaguar, only if it had a Big Size advantage.

In afo it showed the anaconda killing the jaguar. I know it's not the most accurate of shows but the snake could overpower the jaguar and drag it to the water like in afo but the jaguar would have to be distracted which could happen so snake 6/10

Jaguars can kill 300kg animals
The largest anaconda was 97.5kg, average Pantanal Jaguar is 90kg-100kg.
The Largest Jaguar was 160kg.
I can't see the anaconda killing this Monster Cat

The Jaguar can do it too, even better than Anaconda.
This is a Fight Face To Face.

Pantanal Jaguar would win..

The largest anaconda ever measured was almost 28 feet long with a girth of 44 inches. She wasn't weighed at the time she was caught, but scientists estimate that she must have weighed over 500 lbs.

So is this video staged or what? If it's not then I side with the Jaguar.

The anaconda has been known to kill ten year old boys. One of them survived only because their parents came and scared away the snake. In a head to head the snake can bite the cats face and strangle it making his main attack useless

Either could kill the other by ambush, but face to face the jag would win every time IMO, unless the anaconda had a huge size advantage but as Prehistoric Csat has already mentioned, this is very unlikely.
Jags do actually prey on anacondas, it is not uncommon for them to be included in their diet. They also prey on adult caiman so they are more than comfortable in water.
On land or shallow water jag wins, in deep water anaconda.

I'm pretty sure both animals can take out a man.

The snake is slower than the cat, it can't get to the cats head as easily as the Jaguar can get to the snake's head. Plus the jaguar has claws.
