Snow leopards catch their prey by catching them all of sudden and pouncing on them. It’s a skill that they’re born with but it’s to be practiced. That’s why this mama cat is ensuring her cub practices his sneak attack…on her.
In this adorable clip, visitors to a zoo notice the small one hiding behind a rock and watching his mama, who is relaxing not too far away. He lowers into a “pounce” position as his mama pretends to not see him. As soon as she walks in his direction – wham!
