Quintessence of power and agility, leopards are excellent tree climbers and they often hoist their kill to protect it from hyenas, lions and wild-dogs. This particular leopardess, either overestimated her climbing skills or underestimated the weight of the antelope, but she crashed down with a look of utmost surprise on her face! Upon landing, the leopard was unscathed and the antelope was still very dead.
