There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Here is a case of a Leopard and a Changeable Hawk-Eagle eating from the same kill.

'In this note, we report on an incident of interspecific association in which both the Changeable Hawk-eagle and Leopard were recorded feeding on a fresh dead Spotted Deer (Axix axis), which was hidden by a Leopard in a tree.'

'Thereafter, almost after a decade, on 16 May 2018 (240 hrs), while transversing across the Gohri forest of the RNP, an individual of Changeable Hawk-eagle was observed feeding on the carcass of Spotted Deer, which was hidden in a tree (Indian Cherry (Cordia dichotoma)) by a Leopard (30.001°N, 78.288°E) (photo 2). We watched the incident for a while and continued to our trail. Since we were aware that the Leopard had killed the animal and hidden its remains, we were curious to observe the spot again. On way back, we recorded an adult Leopard feeding on the same carcass (740 hrs) sitting on the same tree (photo 3). It was noteworthy to record such a scavenging behaviour of Changeable Hawk-eagle on the feed of Leopard, which reveals on the interspecific interactions (passive symbiosis) among both the species. 

Although Changeable Hawk-eagle is known as a bird of prey who attacks and kills small mammalian species and some records of species’ scavenging on remains of carcass of wild animals exist, this account constitutes the first ever documentation of interspecific association, which reveals on the passive symbiosis between Changeable Hawk-eagle and Leopard.'

Old vid of a leopardess attempting to prey on a young hyena but failing. This is the most aggressive I’ve seen a hyena be with any large carnivore if I’m going to be honest. Looks like the leopard walked away with a broken tail

Here’s some info on cheetah interspecific interactions with spotted hyenas from Namibia. From 2008-2012, 4 translocated adult cheetahs were killed by spotted hyenas. 1 of them (Aju40) was a captive female. Aju01 was a 3 year old wild female weighing 37kg. Aju38 was a wild adult male of 37kg. Aju19 (the largest male in this study) was a wild 49kg male who was released with Aju20, an adult female cheetah (who also died but the cause of her death is unknown). Aju19 was killed by 2 spotted hyenas. I didn’t see anything about lion or leopard predation but instead all of the predator conflict deaths were caused by spotted hyena, which is quite unusual.

This made it to the front page of Reddit today - a very bold leopard eating food straight out of a crocodile’s mouth:
