(Big) Cat fight!

This must have been interesting . . . two leopards having a full go at each other in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa.  That’s a combined total of somewhere between five hundred and seven hundred pounds of pissed-off pussycats.  It looks almost as if they’re poised on their tails.

Note the claws and hind paw strikes.  That’s not a play fight – it’s the real deal.  I’m glad I wasn’t within striking distance!



  1. So…how how did it work out? Who won…er, which "Spot" one?

    In all seriousness, that picture should get a prize. I'd love to see the others from this once-in-a-lifetime event.

  2. Going by the look of that paw, I expect both of them were holding their guts in with two paws.

    No-one really wins a catfight – except the audience.
