Observation Tower
Leopards are magnificent tree climbers. They have the ability to effortlessly ascend tall trees, matching the agility of the monkeys. They do this for several reasons: for safety, for a better observation point, or as a strategic spot from which they can ambush a potential prey passing beneath the tree. In the photo, a female leopard from the Chitabe concession in Botswana is observing the surroundings late in the evening.
