See what this leopard does when she finds an orphaned monkey.
We all know how it works: leopard kills monkey, leopard eats monkey, leopard lives another day. Sometimes we don’t think about the carnivorous nature of some of the animals we hunt.
We know they have to kill other animals for every meal, but sometimes we forget there is more to these hunters.
This amazing video shows us both sides of a ferocious animal. First, the predatory side, in which she uses her natural instincts to take down a monkey for her next meal. Then we get to see a different side.
Once the leopard realizes the monkey left behind a now-orphaned baby, her maternal instincts take over. She does what any mother would do upon finding an orphaned child. She cared for it.
This is a great reminder things are not always as they seem at first glance. Some of the craziest things you will ever see happen in nature. While we often don’t get to see these events, either in person or on film, it is great to see something like this when it does happen.Follow me on Twitter @Chrisbuck243
