A leopard? :big_eyes:

Do they even exist in Addo? :twisted: It is claimed that there are some,
but I haven't seen proof of that yet. :roll:

Now, how do I get a leopard with a yellow ribbon onto the cam... :hmz:

As part of my new trip report "Guess what we saw in KTP April 2012" I've decided to try and have this project benifit from our visit.

:dance: :dance: :dance:


As most of you know leopards are the one thing I really want an awesome sighting off!!!! :wall: :wall: :wall:

Over the years and numerous visits, we've only succeeded to see three leopards and none we up close and personal............. :whistle: :whistle:

Sooooooooooooooo

In order to help Lionspoon with her mobile webcam project:

1.I'll pay for each correct guess of How many leopards we saw on this trip a hundred Rand to the project.

If you want you could place bets ( really can be small amounts R10 etc) between each other or if you guess correct pay an amount..........it's all up to you

2. We had what I though were a not so ordinary sighting during our trip ( and I'll give you a clue it was not a bird!!!)

I'll pay for each correct guess of what the not so ordinary animal was that we saw a five hundred Rand to the project.

Same applies here, if you want you could give to the project if you guess correct or you could bet against each other.

Come on Angels and Musketeers................this is going to be a lot of fun!!!!
