#27 Serengeti - juST hanging about

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 27 November 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This was a common sighting, a leopard hanging over a branch up a tree, after dragging his prey up a tree. Once the leopard has been sighted, more often than not, the prey is a little further up the tree, safely away from scavengers.

@By Marie: Yes he has eaten, if you look up to the top left hand corner, you will see the remains of his lunch.
