This great image taken between TR and Mata was posted on ODP. :clap: I don't know the photographer but maybe you can ID the Leo and update the records from the EXIF info.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the link IainP :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
The leopard is Miera.
That is an impressive kill...i'm guessing she is scavenging from a lion kill....but would be great to try and get the story.

So I have another exciting update.
It seems like all of last years cubs are coming out of the wood work. Warona the Auchterlonie females cub from December 2012 (http://www.sanparks.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=18567&start=720) has been seen recently with her mum at the Lower dune road turn off in the Aoub.
They were seen by Sean O'Hagen on the 6th August 2013 and we have him to thank for these great pictures.

Here's a quick photo of Warona and her mum from Dec 2012 for a side-by-side size comparison. Look how much she's grown in Sean's photos!
