Viral video: See how leopard hunted down a baby monkey
New Delhi, July 2: Leopards in Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh seems to have a special liking for monkeys. In May, a video of the leopard hunting down a monkey had gone viral from this reserve.
Now, yet another clip from the same place has emerged where the leopard, this time, has found prey in a baby monkey.
In the viral clip, the leopard climbs the tree to catch the baby monkey. What amazed the viewers is its balance on the tree and the way it hunts down its prey. Interestingly, he falls from above the tree while capturing its prey, but the fall from above does not have much impact on it.
It seems like the leopard is fit and fine. "1/n A rare sight @pannatigerreserve. A leopard can be seen hunting a baby monkey by jumping on the tree," the clip was officially shared by Panna Tiger Reserve.
