While on a photographic safari in the Savuti Channel in Botswana, 57-year-old electrical engineer Abel Coelho captured what few have ever been lucky enough to film – a leopard plunging into a muddy watering hole after a catfish.

These “fishing” leopards have a unique skill in catching fish. The feat has rarely been photographed.

Lucky for Coelho, the guide he was with got a tip that a leopard was hunting in the Hippo Pool area. After racing to the location, they arrived just in time for the muddy action to begin.
