It’s not what you think it is!

Below is a video of a large panther seemingly starting to slowly creep up on a man who seems unaware of the great cat.

Then, just as the panther lunges, the story turns from terrifying to terrific. Watch it below or click here!

According to the Today Show’s website, the man in the video is Eduardo Serio, who is in charge of the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation in Mexico. The panther, named Kal-El, was actually rescued by Serio.

The Today Show reports that the person shooting the video knew that Serio and Kal-El were close, so that’s why Serio wasn’t warned.
