The Indian Forest Service caught a leopard staring at the camera and posted the photo on their Twitter account. While leopards are known to enjoy their own company, it feels special for a person to capture them on camera, especially when they try to find out what the machine is made of. In this particular video, the leopard progressed in its endeavors after knowing that the camera was harmless.
The leopards are part of the larger big cats family known for their speed in hunting for food. While the leopard is not that fast, it is known for its drill to climb and hunt for prey. With time, just like other indigenous forest animals, the leopards are slowly becoming extinct worldwide. This tells you how grasping its picture is a good feeling.
This photo created a good chance for viewers and the public to differentiate between the fast cheetah. The two animals have distinct differences in their body spots. Cheetah spots are much smaller, while the leopards are darker.
IFS was started to conserve and protect wildlife and the natural forest habitat. They have been at the forefront of arresting poachers and dealing with the criminal cases of tourism and deforestation. Their role largely lies in monitoring the endangered species and understanding their behavior much better.
