Young leopard sees mirror image of itself


This May 2013 video says about itself:

An unbelievably rare sighting of a leopard playing with it’s reflection on a car.

This was taken on the H1-3 at Kumana dam South of Satara in the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Another video used to say about itself:

5 February 2018

Young Leopard sees reflection of itself against an Open Safari Vehicle – Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Was this Leopard confused and/or amused? You decide…

“Just came in from Malelane gate, about 3km when I saw the white face of the mother on top of rocks between the bushes. I stopped and waited to see what would happen. That’s when the cub approached the car.

You see me tapping the door. I was hoping that would stop her from going under the car (she did stop). Cub and mother left, crossing the road.” – video taker, Gerhardt Strydom
