Leopard doens't like what he sees in the mirror - 25 December 2012



This video is of a leopard looking at his reflection in a black car. He thinks it's another leopard so he starts to hiss at the mirror like car and scratch the car.
This is really rare and unique footage!

It was taken on the H1-2 N of skukuza in the Kruger National Park in South Africa

Video by Christelle Hurter

These are my latest 2 Leopards seen in Feb this year.

This one on the H11, Kruger Gate Road, near the S1 junction.

On the first of May 2013 we were on the H1-3 driving from Tshokwane to Satara. It must have been around 8.30 am when we found a remarkable leopard. The leopard was very interested in a Fiat Punto. Ehm.. Strange? Well, watch the movie and find out yourself.

What do you guys think? What caused the behaviour of the leopard? Was it just seeing its own reflection?

Leopards are inquisitive animals, especially young ones. Maybe the sun glinted on the mirror and it was investigating?
