Leopard and Boar by Lalith Eknayake

This leopard Panthera pardus barely made it to the tree when a wild pig Sus scrofa in Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park charged at it. Though it is the largest predator on the island it knows better than to risk injury from the razor-sharp tusks of a full-grown, angry wild pig. Forests are filled with such dramatic moments and keeping such biodiversity-rich areas free of human disturbance is vital to any successful conservation effort.
