A battle of the strongest between a hungry leopard and an innocent baby monkey in the heart of the Madhya Pradesh jungle. India was captured on film.
The spectacular show took place on the Panna Tiger Reservation, where a leopard hunted a cub by jumping through the treetops.
The spotted animal prepares to jump, standing on the branches, jumps to another tree and somersaults to the ground.
At first glance, it seems that the leopard came up empty-handed, but a closer look reveals the lifeless body of a monkey in its mouth.
The video shared on Twitter has gone viral, with many users commenting on the cardiac arrest footage.

“Brute force of nature,” wrote one user, while another said, “A rare sight indeed.”
One person commented, “If you’re being chased by a leopard, don’t climb a tree to save yourself.”
The Panna Reserve is home to numerous animals, including Indian wolves, pangolins, tigers, sloth bears, gharials and Indian foxes, as well as several bird species such as crested honey buzzard and geese.
Panna National Park was established in 1981. In 1994, the Government of India declared it a project tiger reserve.

The national park consists of the areas of the former Gangau Wildlife Sanctuary, established in 1975, which consists of the territorial forests of the current North and South Panna Woodlands, to which part of the adjoining Chhatarpur Woodland was later added.
Leopards are known to feed on monkeys and can eat several in one sitting.
Mammals are also adept at tree climbing, as they usually take their prey and hide it in the trees to scare away other predators.
Monkeys usually stay away from leopards to avoid becoming food, but in 2018 a group of monkeys saved a leopard from drowning.

Footage of the event shows them constantly chatting and jumping at the edge of a well behind a temple in Sikara, Rajasthan, to warn nearby people that a leopard has fallen into it – the well is 25 feet deep.
Temple visitors were drawn to the well by the monkeys’ unusual behavior and found a leopard swimming at the bottom.
After several attempts, the leopard managed to grab onto the ladder and use it to get out of the well.
Ranger Devendra Singh Rathor said: “We were informed of the incident around 6 am on June 11th. We immediately sent a rescue team to the scene.
“The rescue operation lasted almost an hour.
“Perhaps the leopard fell into the well at night, chasing prey. We were able to rescue a wild cat with a ladder.
“As soon as he came out of the well, he ran into the jungle. He did not attack any inhabitant or domestic animal in the village.”
