The clip, from the BBC's Planet Earth, is believed to be the first footage ever filmed of a snow leopard hunting in the wild. It was captured by cameraman Doug Allan who endured incredibly difficult conditions to get the footage.
The entire production of Planet Earth, which profiles many aspects of the Earth and its amazing features/creatures, took ten years to complete.
In the summer of 2012, researchers from the Snow Leopard Trust and Panthera - working together - located two female snow leopards, and their baby cubs, safe and well in their dens located in the Tost Mountains of southern Mongolia.
