The leopardess was deep in slumber high up on a tree branch when awakened by the alarm calls of a Malabar Giant Squirrel. On spotting the rodent, she launched an attack, chasing the squirrel around the tree trunk and eventually capturing the animal. Masterful at manoeuvring their habitats, leopards can jump from one tree to another with absolute ease. They can also haul prey twice their size up a tree to feed on the animal in peace. Slim chances for the squirrel, won’t you say?
