The cub’s mother comes over to investigate, taking the forward position against the hidden target. A few swipes of the paw draw out the hoped-for prey, but it’s no easy kill. A rock python, the largest species of snake in Africa, strikes, forcing the leopard to jump back, and giving it the opportunity to make a momentary escape. But the leopard is up for a fight, and with its young watching, the four-legged predator squares off against the legless one.
