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
