Astonishing pictures show who wins in battle of leopard vs python Two of the wild's most fearsome predators were caught in battle when a hungry leopard tackled a tricky python. The huge snake was wedged in the branches of a tree. and the big cat reared up on its back legs. for the tug of war. But it was an easy catch. as it turned out. the python was already dead. and put up no fight at all in Kruger National Park. in South Africa. The African rock python. had been stashed in the tree by a honey badger. but its planned lunch was stolen by the thieving leopard. Photographic tour operator Joshua Mcphail took. the photos on a trip to the park in June. He said: He was staring up at the tree as we approached. and then he jumped up onto his hind legs. and grabbed something that looked the size of a big branch and started pulling. It was a massive African rock python. he continued. He pulled with all his strength. sometimes lifting totally. off the ground and kicking. up a lot of dust to no success. He would then sit and look rather dejected. and take a few bites out of the snake. Joshua continued. The snake was wedged very well. in the tree, which made us think. how it got there. We asked another guide who was already. at the sighting and he told us the detail of an incredible story. he continued. It had been killed by a honey badger. and then stashed in the tree by the badger who was not around at the moment.
