We have all seen a dead, bloated animal before, either driving down the road or possibly hiking through the woods. The dead animal that is filled with gas from the heat of the summer and could possibly explode any minute. We all know it’s best to get away from them quickly… but apparently no one told this leopard.
During a morning patrol at the Djuma Private Game Reserve in Vuyatela, South Africa, one of the guides spotted a rare sight; a leopard making its way towards a dead zebra.
He quickly pulled his phone out to capture the moment when he and the leopard were met with a disgusting surprise when it bit into the bloated hide of the zebra to be met with a fountain of various fluids.
Warning: Some viewers may find this video disturbing.
My favorite moment, if there was to be a favorite, was how the leopard just quickly steps to the side after being soaked with whatever that toxic mixture spewing from the zebra is.
He just has this look of shock on his face like, “What the heck did I just get sprayed with?”
I think he learned a valuable lesson about taking a bite out of whatever animal he comes across. Hopefully he decided to leave that nasty mess alone and found the closest watering hole for a bath.
