Panther playfully pounces on his human friend looking for a kiss

Eduardo Serio is the owner of the Black Jaguar-White Tiger foundation which cares for unwanted big cats.

In this video, Eduardo is leaning back against a wall in an enclosure as a black panther named Kal-El creeps up on him from behind.

For a moment it looks at though the panther is stalking his prey, but what really unfolds is a game between Eduardo and Kal El who affectionately paws Eduardo who responds by kissing the big cat on his nose repeatedly.

It is an amazing video that shows the deep bond between this cat lover and this wild animal that has grown to love what was once considered a threat.

Instagram user @Bofokaram uploaded the video to the social media network two days ago and it has already been watched over 78,000 times.

The Black Jaguar-White Tiger foundation is home to lions, tigers and lynxes across a 30-acre plot.

At the moment, Eduardo is trying to raise money to expand the size of the sanctuary in order to allow his ’babies’ to roam further afield.
