Hi peterpiper!
Your leopard is the Auchterlonie Female. At what time did you see her, and was it at the waterhole?

Oh and while I'm at it, am I correct in thinking this is a young female called Amur. I saw her on the 28 November near Batulama at 6.30 in the evening.

@peterpiper
Auchterlonie Female - You are not the first person that has mistaken her for a male. :wink: Many thanks for the info.

Your second leopard - Amur! :thumbs_up: Looks like you had a great sighting!

Thank you for posting. Could I ask you to please fill in AstroMatt's spreadsheet with your sightings info?(If possible) You will find the spreadsheet and AstroMatt's e-mail in the following link:

Great sightings!
Just a short reply to say i saw the Auchterlonie Female twice over the past two days near the picnic site with a really young cub...surely not more than 2 months old! They even crossed the road in front of us :) pics might have to wait for a better connection.
