This leopard gets a nasty surprise after biting into a dead, bloated zebra.
We've all seen a dead, bloated animal before, either when we were driving down the road or possibly hiking through the woods. The dead animal that's 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.

My favorite moment, if you'd even call it that, was how the leopard just quickly steps to the side after being soaked with whatever the toxic mixture is that's spewing from the zebra.
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.
