A male leopard in South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve is dazzling the gawking tourists with his strawberry locks. But watch out gazelles, this fair-furred feline has still got the spots to keep him camouflaged and make him a killer when he’s out on the prowl.
They say a leopard can’t change his spots, but when you look as good as this pink panther, who would want to?
