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.

Q-C

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.
