Unlike other big cats that rely on strength and speed to bring down their prey, the leopard is a master of ambush. The video clip below offers a unique glimpse of the predator in action which proves just how good these leopards are when it comes to stalking and ambushing.
The video shows a herd of impalas grazing and blissfully unaware of the danger lurking above. A leopard that managed to stay well-hidden on one of the trees suddenly jumps to the ground and takes the impalas by surprise. While the frightened impalas make a dash, one of them is nabbed by the leopard and meets its end.
The cold-blooded assassin surely has more than one trick up its sleeve.
