    Those sneaky snacks!

    She may look grown, but Thlalamba the young leopard still has a few things to learn about fending for herself on the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in South Africa.

    Thlalamba is seen cautiously crouched down, waiting for a pack of mongooses to get within striking distance. While the pack appears to have the same vigilant eye on the big cat, one mongoose, attempting to dash past the foe, pops out of the brush and is immediately pounced at by Thlalamba.

    According to the employee narrating the clip, Thlalama's food fumble can be chalked up to immaturity, as she's still improving her hunting skills.

      Watch Me, Boston Dynamics! Boston Terrier Acts Like Key-Operated Toy

      Before there were robot dogs, there were wind-up toys, sometimes involving a key. While it may be obvious that AI is allowing for more life-like robo-pets, this doggo has managed to pretend to be an automaton pretty well. Will we be able to tell the difference in the future?

      Enough Encroachment Already! Baby Jumbo Hilariously Kicks Out Interloper

      It is said that elephants never forget but this angry, young pachyderm in particular seems to have been born with some sort of collective memory and is instinctively aware of all the troubles its kind has had to suffer at man's behest and it isn't going to stand it any longer - so, though young, it teaches man a lesson.
