The Heartbreaking Cycle Of Life
Even though this photograph depicts a heartbreaking scene, where a baby monkey clings to its dead mother, it also shows the cycle of life. The leopard needs food to eat, so it killed its prey. This happened in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, when Igor Altuna captured this stunning photograph. After the leopard reached its home, it play-hunted with the baby for an hour until ultimately killing it. Because people widely trade leopard skins and canine teeth, the poaching of leopards is unfortunately a common occurrence and thus lead to the endangerment of leopards. Their population is rapidly disappearing, and there are only around 250,000 leopards left in the world (Save Animals Facing Extinction).
