We've seen wild animals caught on camera traps, and we've seen kittens see their first mirror image. But now we've got a pair of curious young leopards encountering a large mirror on the side of an empty road near Nyonié in Gabon. This sequence was edited down from a 20-minute encounter. French videographer Xavier HUBERT-BRIERRE set up 29 camera traps, but unfortunately is having a hard time getting repair work done on those the animals have damaged.

That was great! Such typical feline behavior. Some housecats respond to mirrors too, others ignore them.
But 20 minute encounter? That is a long time to keep their attention.
It must be confusing for them to see an animal yet not be able to smell it or have contact with it.
