Africa never ceases to suprise!

A most unusual sight: a Leopard with a Monitor Lizard.

This Leopard had two hungry cubs to feed. However, she is quite an old animal and struggles to hunt her normal prey. So she has become very opportunistic in catching smaller prey. Nevertheless, it was a surprise to all concerned when she was seen with this Monitor Lizard. The guides had never seen this before.

She walked across open ground before climbing the hill where her two, two-month old cubs were holed up in a den behind a rocky outcrop. The lizard would make a most welcome snack for the cubs.

It was great to see such a most unusual sight: a Leopard with a Monitor Lizard
