Leopard And Black Panther Photographed In Incredibly Rare Moment

This is the unbelievable moment a photographer was able to capture this exceptionally rare encounter between a leopard and a black panther.

The classic photo was captured by Mithun H who calls the pair ‘The Eternal Couple’.

He claims that the pair have been friendly with one another for quite a while after being spotted together around the jungles of Kabini in Karnatak, India, many times over the last four years.

The Eternal Couple . Saaya and Cleopatra have been courting since 4 years now and whenever they are together it’s a sight to behold. The forest comes alive as they trot nonchalantly in his fabled kingdom. Usually in the courting pairs generally it is the Male who takes charge and moves around with the female following close behind. But with this couple it was definitely Cleo who was in charge while the Panther followed. . This was shot on a surreal winter morning when a single Deer alarm led me to this breathtaking sight. . #kabini #love #leopard #nikon #wild #Natgeo #mithunhphotography #instagood #instadaily #jungle #bigcat #forest #wildlifephotography #nature #wildlife #blackpanther #melanistic #therealblackpanther #thebisonresort

Everyone has been totally blown away by the exceptional image – and it’s easy to see why!

Good job Mithun!
