Cape Town – Tourists in Zambia got a rare chance to see something that almost never happens: A young leopard sharing a meal with a crocodile.

The leopard took a frightful opportunity to try and steal the carcass of a dead impala from a large crocodile. The carcass was still in the mouth of the crocodile.

According to Yahoo, the video was shot in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park.

At one point the courageous leopard can be seen just a few millimetres away from the Nile crocodile’s teeth.

The leopard was able to get a few good bites before the crocodile decided to move away.

Check out the video below.
