Has this big cat been watching Meerkat Manor on TV?
Safari guide Letsogile Kamogelo spotted the leopard stalking a warthog in a wildlife reserve in Botswana. He said the cat then lost sight of her prey.
“So she lifted herself up for at least 45 seconds to a minute at a time,” Kamogelo told local reporters. “She was very careful whenever she stood up because she didn’t want to fall on her back. This is a very unusual behavior and I have never heard or read about it before.”
Meerkats also live in the wild in Botswana, so it’s possible that the leopard had picked up the idea from watching them.
