Rumble / Wild Wildlife - A safari tourist captured the moment a leopard dove into the water and emerged with a catfish in its mouth.

The uploader told Newsflare that he was driving over a low water bridge when he spotted a young male leopard sitting on the rocks. He was staring down and seemed to be interested in something in the water.

"Suddenly the male leopard jumped with his front legs in the water," he said. "We realized that this leopard was indeed attempting to catch a fish."

The footage was filmed on May 25 in South Africa's Kruger National Park. According to the uploader, antelope prey is scarce during the dry season, and it is during this time that tourists can observe the incredible ability of leopards to adapt and survive through their hunting skills.
