In the clip, a leopard can be seen climbing a tall tree and leaping from one tree to another while keeping its eyes on a baby monkey. As soon as it reaches its prey, the fragile wood of the tree fails to bear the weight of two animals. The leopard loses its balance and fell from a considerable height. Though its body crashes heavily to the ground, the fall seems of no effect. The wild cat looks comfortable with its prey in its mouth.

One of the users wrote that cat was a ‘Brute force of nature.’ Another marked, “Never seen anything like that before”. One person commented, “Good photography no doubt, but I got shocked to see the monkey kid caught by the cheeta. Baboons are dangerous fighters and they used to fight back against the lions or cheetaas to make them distorted.”

Additionally, more than 200 species of birds like Indian vulture, red-headed vulture, blossom-headed parakeet, bar-headed geese and crested honey buzzard can also be seen in the reserve.
