Watch This GoPro Camera Go Head-to-Head With a Leopard and Her Cub
We all know how curious cats can be, but when the big, wild cats act out, there’s going to be a little more damage. In this case, a GoPro camera stared a leopard in the eyes and down the mouth as she and her 10-month-old cub scoped out the device.
A 26-year-old ranger at the MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa, Roan Ravenhill left the camera on a wooden post in the wild to capture footage of animals without humans around. To his delight, two leopards, which are members of an elusive, near-threatened species, stumbled upon his gadget.
Leopards are known to be one of the most private big cat species on the planet. Luckily, Ravenhill’s GoPro was able to take us head-to-head, or head-to-mouth, with the beautiful animals and capture a glimpse into their lives as they investigated and played with the unfamiliar object.
