This leopard got itself into a prickly situation when it tried to lunch on a porcupine. The feline was resting in a tree on the side of the road when the unsuspecting rodent wandered underneath it.
Measuring about a metre and a half in length, the big cat pounced from the tree. Traffic was halted as the surprised porcupine made its way across the road while it was being attacked by the leopard.
As Yusuf Chavoos was driving his car through Kruger National Park in South Africa, he was shocked when the two animals emerged from the trees. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
