Here is a new leopard for the Kaspersdraai area called Motsumi.
Mike Cary spotted him on 10th September 2013 at around 8am.
He is a young male judging by the small testicles but he is looking very well. He was spotted the following day at the same location.
All the pictures are courtesy of Mike.

Some updates on names.
The two leopards sighted by Wendzh at Polentswa have been named Lotlatlana for the mum and Pelo for the cub. These are Setswana names and mean Dusk and Heart.

Tswana's cub spotted by Jo earlier this year has been named Ontlametse, this is a Setswana name for Protector.

The new leopard posted above by Cruisa has been called Bontle, this means Beauty in Setswana.

The leopard posted by andrew.ashton on the 4th July has been called Neo, this means a gift in Setswana.

There is also one more recent leopard that isn't currently on the forum. This female was spotted at both Kwang on the 22/06/2013 and Nossob on the 02/07/2013. She has been called Haigamas, this is a Nama/Damara word for Blue lilly at a waterplace. I shall try and get some pictures of this very dotty leopard up soon.

I think that is all for now.
enjoy

I took this Photo of Khomani on 25 Feb 2011. We came across her and Miera. Miera was up in a tree watching her while she stalked and grabbed the Battie. She brought it (still alive) to Miera, who then killed it.
