A video of an encounter between a leopard and a monitor lizard has gone viral on social media.
The 2018 clip resurfaced after it was tweeted by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan along with a caption that read, “#Leopard V/S Monitor #Lizard. This lizard is a fighter but #Leopards are excellent hunters. Like Jim Corbett, somebody said ‘King in the making’.”
According to a Daily Mail report, the exchange between the two species was filmed at Kaingu Safari Lodge in Zambia. In the 14-second clip, the leopard cub can be seen approaching the lizard as the reptile continues to scare the wild cat with its tail.
