Leopard vs. Baboon


Eye of the Leopard tracks one cat for a remarkable three years in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. She’s called Legadema, or “Light from the Sky,” and we follow her from the first vulnerable days as a cub, through the development of her hunting instincts, to her later triumphs that make her one of the most feared predators stalking the floodplain.

Video Preview: When a baboon chows down on an antelope, a leopard tries to join in the feed, leaving her cub exposed to attacks from predators.
