One can not deny their raw majesty and beauty and it is always such a pleasure observing them in the wild. But these photographers truly got lucky when this leopard strolled right past them. Leopards are classified as one of the Big 5 in Africa.

The Big 5 however, are not the biggest 5 animals in Africa. The elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard are the 5 most dangerous animals to encounter on foot in Africa. The leopard especially, due to its camouflage and speed, reaching an average of 58 km/h. When charging, they can cover 23 meters in one second.
