Wild panthers in Gabon react to seeing themselves in a mirror

A neat idea.  Two guys wanted to see how wild animals in a forest in Gabon, in Africa, would react to seeing themselves in a mirror.  And they caught the attention of a young male panther.

I love that the panther went behind the mirror, then on top of it, trying to find the other panther (its reflection).  My dog did something similar when she first saw other animals on my TV.
