THEY say curiosity killed the cat - but in this case the cat's curiosity almost killed the camera. Roan Ravenhill, 26, a ranger at the MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa, mounted a GoPro on a wooden stand and waited for the leopard and her 10-month-old cub to come and investigate. Despite the leopards' attentions, the camera survived intact - leaving behind beautiful footage of the pair playing and exploring.
