A photographer captured a rather unusual scene in the Arizona desert- a bobcat was sitting on top of a giant Saguaro cactus to avoid becoming a prey of a mountain lion.
One skillful bobcat climbed on the top of a 40-foot tall cactus to avoid being eaten by a mountain lion!..The massive plant with two-inch spikes in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert became her safe spot. The Giant Saguaro Cactus is very rare, and this one is thought to be up to 300-years-old.
The entire event was documented by photographer Curt Fonger, 69, from Gold Canyon, Arizona, in April 2011.
