Leopards

I personaly feel if u ended up in da bushes of kruger park and one of these animals spotted u, say ur last preyers. No tree would save u and speed would just make ur earthly departure more painful. A group of people were gazing at the Leopard climming a tree with an impala grip with its teeth. Arriving at the comfortable top branches it sat there with its young ones and hung the meal as if to it was yet to be prepared to be eaten.

Besides its fierce appearance, its beauty and msucilinity is an eye catch plus they are photogenic. whats ur favourite Kruger park animal?

hey oz,

mmm ... its hard to say i'd have to say the lion.. their ability to work together as a team and fight so hard for survival against all odds...
The way a pride interacts with each other and the way they communicate... theres nothing like the roar of the lion!

I was at the national zoo yesterday (im a zoopartner there) and the big lion male made himself known throughout the zoo with his oh so majestic roar (kind of reminds me alot about Alex in madagascar)

that would be my choice..

Lion... no doubt has a might ring to it. Lets analise the diffference between the Leopard and the lions.

Leopards-Colourful skin, beautiful spots, exquesite muscle movement and intriquet abilities to climb and run, attack and camourflauge (hope i spelled it right)

Lions- Very protective, one or two tone colours, majestic roar and amazing hight and strenght.

Has these two wild cats ever crossed paths and had their might tested against each other? By the way i was watching the movie Ghost and the dark, its about two male lions slaughtering people in the upper parts of East Africa. They raised a rumour that male lions hardly hunt together, how true is that?

I like the honey badger coz its scared of nothing it if fearless and tough.Such a small creature will even stand up to a lion even if the lion is many times its size. I wonder if a lion would survive a cobra bite?A honey badger will survive the bite and in the end eat the cobra as well (show on TV).Honey badger is known not to back down where a lion will most times run if they see humans on foot!

It is hard to say, as I love all wild animals. If I have to name only one it will be the leopard. :lol:

The DOGS - I mean Wild Dogs are by far my favorite. Their amazing colours, the interaction, teamwork and uniqueness of these amazing and endangered creatures has facinated me for long.

For me, the fact that they are so small and yet such effective and intelligent killers is simply amazing. Their internal ranking and the way they care about the puppies is unmatched.

I hope to see them many more times :thumbs_up:
