Description:

This camera was set up outside my hut. I was hoping to get a genet or a bush baby and I got this leopard. It is literally two feet fro the exterior wall of my hut. I could not believe it when I saw it. I have dutch doors and only close the top when it rains. To think that that leopard has never leaped in while I was sleeping.

I always knew there was one around, but to see was really special.
