Wild Lioness Spotted Nursing A Baby Leopard

For the first time, a wild lioness has been photographed nursing a baby leopard. 

Interspecies suckling has been documented among captive animals, but this sighting is pretty much mind-blowing to lion experts. Typically, a lioness would kill a baby leopard.

"It's unprecedented," Luke Hunter, president and chief conservation officer of the global wild cat organization Panthera said.
