I love these amazing creatures. Leopards can disappear more effective than Houdini ever could, they can carry more than their own body weight up a tree, and they can see seven times better than humans in the dark!
This is the eighths video with music from the album ‘Under the Marula Tree’ by ROOT, a local band. It features some of my pictures and videos.
The music is composed to symbolize African nature icons (eg sunrises, Lions, Leopards, Elephants, …). This very special album is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer for streaming and download! https://root.hearnow.com/
The markings of a Leopard are one of the most incredible designs of nature. The rosette design of the coats of these elusive cats allow them to ‘disappear’ within meters/yards of the observer.
I have seen Leopards walk of a road into a thicket and just vanish. Only once they move (even as little as an ear or the tip of the tail) I was often able to locate them again. And believe me, they are masters in ‘holding still’ and being patient. Many times they were just gone, as a magician from a stage!
