    Tug of War African Bush Style


    A Python became the focus of an epic tug-of-war between two Leopards. The six and a half foot (2 meter) long African Rock Python became the unwilling rope in the game, after being caught by a female Leopard in the long grass. But as she dragged it, still wriggling, along behind her, she was ambushed by her son who wanted to land the kill for himself. The young male snatched the end of the snake, and tried to tug it away from his mother. The two big cats fought ferociously over their prey for half an hour, in front of stunned guests at the MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa.

    Prime example of why lepoards will be the last cat standing. They will eat anything.
