WATCH: Hungry leopard hunts baby monkey, internet impressed
New Delhi, July 01: In a rare sight, a leopard can be seen hunting a baby monkey by jumping on a tree from the Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh. The video is now going viral.
In the viral clip, a leopard can be seen climbing a tree in a bid to catch the baby monkey. Though the leopard grabs the monkey in its mouth, it suffers a fall from a considerable height. But that doesn't seem to have any effect on the leopard, which is seen sitting comfortably with its kill.
"A rare sight @pannatigerreserve. A leopard can be seen hunting a baby monkey by jumping on the tree," said the tweet.
