Leopard, South AfricaPhoto: Madison Hall
A dew-bathed juvenile leopard takes a peaceful moment atop a fallen tree on a wintery South African morning. Compared with other African game, leopards are famously shy and rarely seen, partially because of their largely nocturnal hunting habits. Leopards number among many other species of top predators whose population numbers are falling due to human impacts, making this a special sighting of a rare animal that is both powerful and extraordinarily gorgeous.

    VIDEO: ‘Sofia The Lion Tamer’ Goes Nose-To-Nose With Big Cat

    When 3-year-old Sofia Walker was with her family at New Zealand’s Wellington Zoo last week, she had quite a close encounter with, as The New Zealand Herald says, a grumpy lion who didn’t like having his breakfast disturbed.

    There was glass in between, but as you can see in the video taken by her dad, Sofia still had quite an experience. Twice, the big cat really pawed at the glass. But little Sofia barely flinched.

    “She’s always had this quiet confidence with animals, but she’s certainly more confident with a lion than I would be, that’s for sure,” her father, Julian Walker, told the Herald.

    His video clip has now been viewed about 1.3 million times. —Mark Memmott

A baby Persian leopard enjoys the autumn sun at the Bio Park in Rome, where he was born September 1. The Persian leopard, the largest leopard subspecies, is an endangered species. It is native to an area stretching from eastern Turkey to western Afghanistan, but there are only around 1,000 animals in the wild.
