WOW :dance: :dance: :dance: what a beauty.

After looking at Barry's pictures of joggers, I wonder if they would be as happy jogging. :hmz:

Oh wow! That is amazing! What a beauty! Is anything known about the ages, sex and so on of the Aughrabies leopards?

Yes salamanda, there are currently two photographed leopards at Augrabies. One is roaming the Klipspringer hiking trail and the other one is in the Swart Rante.

This one is only the third one that was photographed since September 2012 and will be added to the current info of a project that is run by AstroMatt and wanderw :thumbs_up: .
