A big cat handler avoids being savaged by a leopard after a heroic intervention by a tiger.
The dramatic clip shows animal conservationist Eduardo Serio playing with a group of lions at the Black Jaguar White Tiger sanctuary in Mexico.
However, as he pats the tummy of one of the predators, a leopard can be seen in the background stalking handler who has his back turned.
But as the spotted animal, whose name is Dharma, sprints towards Eduardo, a huge tiger leaps through the air and tackles the beast.
The hero tiger, named Aztlan, had been sitting in the shade behind its trusted handler before showing split second reactions.
Aztlan used incredible agility to catch Dharma and pin the leopard to the ground startling Eduardo.
