A female leopard (Panthera Pardus) eating grass in the Auob Riverbed of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Southern Africa. Experts believe that cats may eat grass as a way of ridding their digestive tract of something unpleasant or inedible. Nibbling grass is thought to be of particular importance to wild carnivores as it allows them to regurgitate any inedible parts that get swallowed, for example, fur, feathers, scales and bones of their prey. The juices in grass also contain folic acid, an essential vitamin for a cat's bodily functions.
