Description:

The skull of what is believed to be the last peinisula leopard. The skull was found in a cave in 1995, along with the remains of the leopards two cubs. showed signs of being shot. This skull is a sad reminder of what once called the Cape home, and what the Cape has lost.

Leopard on foot!

I have been walking at night for so long and finally I managed to see a leopard on foot at night.

The encounter was very good. I spotted the leopard from about 100m it stopped and then continued walking in my direction. At about forty metres the animal stopped sat down and watched. I stayed for about ten minutes and decided to leave the leopard in peace. It was great to be the one to leave the sighting. It was a magical encounter.

This is the big tom from our area.
