British wildlife guide Mark Sheridan-Johnson captured on film this inquisitive big cat which spent a long time trying to devour the odd looking creature in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. The rare, armour plated pangolin had the perfect defence tactic:roll up into a ball and stay there - whatever happens.
