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.

Description:

Having breakfast in Charite cottage at 9:15 am, saw a flock of small angry birds diving at something on the ridge across the river. Realised it was an animal flitting through the restio tussocks; for a few seconds it stepped out into the open and we saw all of it, spots and stripey tail ... but of course had no camera ready. It disappeared down the river in thick bush, pursued by the angry birds ... later we crossed the river and snapped the rather nice tracks it left behind.

Description:

Right next to the boardwalk. I know pretty much nothing about droppings, but I'm guessing it isn't a domestic dog cause it contained hair and bone fragments...
One longer piece and two separate rounder segments.

I've heard rumors that there used to be a leopard living in the bush by the Ski-Boat Club. Could it be??
