Wait for it… Wait for it… Wait for it… BAM.
This video from MiPix perfectly demonstrates how big cats, who rely on ambush attacks to survive, will hide and wait for ages just for the chance at a quick, violent meal. While it may seem like the impala never had a chance, that’s not the case. It’s incredible to see how quickly the leopard must react in order to take down a fast, skittish, nimble target. Nature: Red in tooth and claw, and occasionally similar to pro wrestling.
