    To bad. At 8 meters it sounds like an interesting hunt.

    This pictures I am about to post was taken on a game drive in the Kalahari by one of my good mates, Bruce Hedges. I have never seen something even similar to this. Would like to know if anyone else have ever seen such behavior?

    See his description to the sighting below quoted:

    "Spots and Scales

    No matter how many hours one spends in the bush, or how many game drives, there is always something new to see. Last night I saw something that torpedoes every sighting I've ever had.

    Following a leopard is special by anyone's standards, but when it pulls a pangolin out a bush and starts tormenting and playing with it, I almost had a heart attack. I've seen lions playing with them on a few occasions, but leopard/pangolin interaction was a first, and probably last for me.

    The Holy Grail floweth over." - Bruce Hedges.
