Two photographers snap the most stunning images ever of a herd of leopards crossing a flooded river.

The peculiarities of wildlife…

Though several tourists were visiting Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Area, something strange and interesting happened. They came across a herd of leopards. They needed to cross the water, so they did. The fact that the river was inundated didn’t bother the leopards.

Photojournalists Arnfinn Johansen and Buddhilini De Soyza got many stunning images right away. Leopards, according to Johansen, have a tough time crossing.

“They shoot on the both shores of the Talek Body of water, so it’s understandable that they’d want to jump on it.” Usually, they could enter the river by walking on rocks, and it had been flooding for a long period of time in the year, and floods made it impossible for them,” Johansen informed Curious Panda. He also stated that the situation was quite perilous.

“They decided to walk along the river for a long period of time, looking for a way across to another shore. It was quite risky due to the powerful flow. Furthermore, the River Alligator lives in that river, and a leopard is an ideal feast for it.”

According to Johansson, they were extremely fortunate to make it to another shore alive.
