This gruesome snap shows how a young biker was left bloodied and bruised after she crashed into a jaguar on a country lane.
Yasmin Chrystal Fideles de Sousa, 20, was left with injuries all over her face and body following the horror smash.
She was riding home from college on her motorbike on the TO-431 road in a rural area of Guarai, Brazil, when the accident happened.
She later took to social media to tell of her close call and reveal how the big cat measured a whopping two metres (seven feet) long.
Yasmin said: “The jaguar crossed the road and I ended up hitting it between its hind legs and belly. I was wearing a helmet and it came loose.”
She revealed that after the collision – at around 10pm on 11th November – it ran off into the forest.
After the crash, Yasmin – a pedagogy student – had to cover the remaining 600 metres (656 yards) to her home on foot, part-stunned and worried the big cat could return.
She described surviving the crash and her subsequent hitch-free walk home as “two deliverances from God”.
After arriving home, her father took her to hospital, where she remained until 13th November, when she was discharged.
She suffered no fractures but was left with several cuts and bruises all over her body, while the crash left her motorbike and mobile phone mangled beyond repair.
Yasmin revealed it was the first time since she moved to her current home 13 years ago that she had come face-to-face with a jaguar.
She said: “I had already seen ocelots, foxes, maned wolves, but it was the first time I had seen a jaguar.”
