A 22-month-old female scaredy cat tiger appeared to get the shock of  her young life when she encountered a dead leaf floating on a pool of  water in the Bandhavgarh National Park, India. Clearly unusure about  just what was approaching her, the partially submerged youngster’s tail  shot up in the air and with teeth bared she let out her most fearsome  growl - all in an effort to scare the humble leaf away.
