of the traditioal big five of african game animals ,the smallest creature is ironically considered the most dangerous to hunt . they are the lion ,elephant ,cape buffaloe ,rhino and leopard . the leopard is the very picture of stealth ,and is often hidden in the tree above you and refuses to roar like the lion and betray his position .being attacked by a leopard is kinda like falling into a very large blender set on high , except with the cutting blades all tipped with rotten bits of meat . they say if you are walking through the bush and you happen to spy a spotted tail swishing back and forth from the branches overhead , DO NOT look up , but continue walking as if you did not see the tail .makeing eye contact will instantly result in the blender type action which is best avoided . dead leopards because they are rather small by comarisn to the other four make for rather unimpressive trophey photo ops , and thus most guiges are able to diswade their clients from seeking such hazardous quarry .
