One Hungry Little Mouse!The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student Casey GutteridgeAt the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire. The 19-year-old,From Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, who was photographing the leopardFor a course project, was astounded By the mouse's Behaviour.He said: 'I have no idea where the mouse came from - he just appearedIn the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard.He didn't take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meatAnd started feeding himself.' 'But the leopard was pretty surprised - she bent down and sniffedThe mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantimeThe mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened.But even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill...'It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosureWas shocked - he said he'd never seen anything like it before.' Project owner Jackie James added: 'It was so funny to see - SheenaBatted the mouse a couple of times to try to get it away from her food.'But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.'Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project from aUK zoo when she was just four months old. She is one of 14 big catsIn the private collection started by Jackie 's late husband Peter in 1989.The African Leopard can be found in the continent's forests,Grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.
....so the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and show the leopardWho was the boss. Just proves no one can push you around without your permission.
