    Default One Hungry Little Mouse

    One Hungry Little Mouse




    The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student Casey Gutteridgeat the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire. The 19-year-old, from Potters
    Bar, Hertfordshire, who was photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded by the mouse's behavior.

    He said: 'I have no idea where the mouse came from - he just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard. He didn't take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding himself.

    'But the leopard was pretty surprised - she bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened...





    ...but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill... 'It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosure wasshocked - he said he'd never seen anything like it before.'

    Project owner Jackie James added: 'It was so funny to see - Sheena batted themouse a couple of times to try to get it away from her food.' But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.'


    Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project from a UK zoo whenshe was just four months old. She is one of 14 big cats in the private collection
    started by Jackie 's late husband Peter in 1989. The African Leopard can be found in the continent's forests, grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.



    So the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch andshow the leopard who was the boss.

    Just proves no one canpush you around without your permission.

    In the second pic, it looks like the mouse is trying to shoo the leopard away, with his wee little paws in the air.
