“Only a cat could look so comfortably relaxed and yet the half-closed eyes miss nothing,” said Simon Combes. “The slightest sound or movement will trigger an instant reaction from the apparently comatose leopard. I found this particular animal in the Aberdare National Park in the Kenya highlands. He was draped over the branch of a wild fig tree, perfectly posed for this painting.”
Unlike lions, leopards are solitary. They often hunt at night to avoid competing with the much larger lion, and a leopard will usually drag its kill into a tree to protect it from scavengers like the hyena. Chui is the Swahili word for leopard.
