A protective leopard hides her young cub in a lodge before going off to hunt.  The mother keeps her offspring safe from predators by leaving the cub in the camp shelter.<br />
<br />
She tucks the two week old cub in a den-like spot behind the sink before scouring the area for food.  Photographer Suzi Eszterhas spotted the small leopard on the bathroom floor of the lodge in Jao Reserve, Botswana.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
