Earlier, a video has surfaced on the internet which shows a hungry leopard risking its life to steal food from the jaws of a huge crocodile. The iconic moment was captured at the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia during the night by wildlife filmmaker Nicole Dangoor near the Mufuwe Lodge. Through the video, the wild cat can be seen approaching near the crocodile which appears to be asleep on a grassy patch with some antelope meat inside its mouth. The leopard can be seen lightly hitting the crocodile with its paws at the antelope meat clenched inside the crocodile's teeth.
