Leopards are known to be masters of prey. However, a recent video of a leopard crawling on and chasing a baby monkey has gone wildly viral, catching the eyeballs of netizens. The 31-second music video revealed a leopard stealthily climbing one tree before suddenly pouncing on another to kill its prey, a baby monkey. Although the big cat manages to pounce on the small creature and grab it in its mouth, the giant leap forces the leopard to tumble from a great height. However, as the leopard gets up on its paws, it seems unaffected by the fall and sits down with the now dead baby monkey in its mouth.

Taking to Twitter, Madhya Pradesh’s Panna Tiger Reserve wrote: “A rare sight… A leopard can be seen chasing a baby monkey while jumping on the tree.”


As soon as the video appeared on Twitter, the microblogging site was inundated with reactions to the gruesome and intriguing images.

“Brute force of nature,” wrote one Twitter user. “A rare sight indeed,” another user commented. “Good photography no doubt, but I was shocked to see the child monkey caught by the chita (leopard). Baboons are dangerous fighters and they used to fight lions or chitaas for the distort…” wrote a third Twitterati.

The viral video has garnered over 5,000 views and received over 198 likes so far.
