This is the utterly random moment a pair of horny tortoises interrupt a leopard hunting its prey. As tourist Matthew Poole filmed the patient predator stalking its next meal on the Sand River bank at Beyond Kirkmans Kamp in South Africa, his shot was invaded by two lovers.

The tortoise couple seem completely comfortable as they approach the leopard, looking for a suitable spot

While the focused leopard tries to focus on November 3, the tortoise couple begrudgingly force her to move forward as they got intimate.

Clearly not perturbed by their big cat neighbour, the randy reptiles carry on until the leopard finally runs off and they are left to carry on their lovemaking.
Matthew, from Limpopo, South Africa, said: ‘I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. We were watching the leopard stalking something in the dense thicket when the tortoises appeared
After around five minutes, the female decided she had had enough and ran off

We were watching the leopard stalking something in the dense thicket when the tortoises appeared. Nobody on the tour could control their laughter.

I managed to subdue everyone as the leopard was in the middle of the hunt.

After about five minutes of their mating, she finally had enough and she ran off. I had never managed to get a video of tortoises mating before until then.
