This leopard quite literally has this man’s back and stops a tiger from pouncing at him from behind.
In a dramatic twist, the leopard springs into action, intercepting the tiger and thwarting the attack.
Although it’s pretty safe to assume the tiger was simply playing - you never know. Either way, it shows the leopard’s protective feelings towards his human friend.
When ranked these by size, the tiger stands at the top. Adult male tigers can weigh up to 675 pounds and measure over 10 feet in length
Lions come in second, with males weighing up to 550 pounds and measuring up to 9.8 feet.
Leopards are the smallest of the three, with males reaching up to 200 pounds and 7.5 feet in length.
