Silent Assasin
πŸ“½ by @paulonsafari

Leopard takes down an impala.

Leopards are ambush predators, their hunting strategy relies on them not being seen until it is too late. A rough estimate of their striking range is 32ft (10m). Once the target is within range the cat springs into attack mode.

It blasts forward and latches onto the animal with is razor-sharp hooked claws and pulls itself close to deliver the killing bite – usually somewhere on the neck, or in this case the snout of the animal.

A successful attack will only take a few minutes from beginning to end, after which the leopard will most likely move its prize to a more secluded location so it can feed in peace. They like to carry prey up into trees for this very reason.
