Leopard looks after orphaned baby monkeys

The video shows a section from the animal documentary "Eye of the Leopard" by Dereck and Beverly Joubert and the scene that is there is really amazing! The leopard lady was about to consume her prey, a monkey, when she suddenly noticed that a little baby monkey was clinging to its dead mother's leg ...

But when the leopard spotted the baby monkey, she reacted very differently than the big cat would expect. She sniffs the orphaned animal carefully and then lies down protectively next to it. Later, the leopard lady brings her unusual protégé to safety when he is threatened by a hyena and drives the troublemaker away. At the end of the video, the leopard cleans the unsettled orphan monkey, which eventually gets tired and falls asleep.

Baby monkeys on the go: it couldn't be sweeter!
