A leopard and her kill today.....
Leopard prey varies from dung beetles, rodents, birds, hares, impala and even adult elands which can reach 900kg. They generally focus their hunting activity on locally abundant medium-sized species in the 20 to 80 kg range, while opportunistically taking other prey. average intervals between kills range from seven to 12 days. They drag their kills into trees to avoid it being taken by other predators. They can haul a carcass of a young giraffe estimated to weigh up to 125kg up a tree. They kill through suffocation by grabbing their prey by the throat and biting down with their powerful jaws. They rarely fight other predators for their food.
They other versions show her in the tree with her kill and also what was left of it the following day.
Have a nice day....
