Hi Richard,
Great sighting and you are 100% right it is N!xau :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
I think he's probably the big male in the North at the moment.
Thanks for posting....if it had been earlier in the day i'm not sure i would have believed you :wink:

AstroMatt ID'ed this leopard as Balete. I'll refer to her as a she, because
it is a small leopard and according to the booklet she is 2.5 years old by
now, so I think she is too small to be a male. I actually thought it was a
juvenile who had lost the mother early when I first saw her.

Anyhoo, we saw her at Nossob on the 19th and the 20th March 2013.
The full story will only be revealed on my TR obviously but we spent
quality time with her.

Funnily enough, I had Balete on the cards when trying to ID her with AstroMatt's
super booklet, but dismissed my thought as I thought the range was wrong. :doh:

If you go to Nossob any time soon, look out for her as she has been quite a regular
on the cams as well, so it seems she is still around. I also saw a magnet on the sighting
board on the 24th indicating that a leopard had been seen at Nossob, so I reckon it was her.

If you check the Nossob webcam thread for March you will find a few more sightings of her as well. :thumbs_up:

AstroMatt confirmed that we saw this guy also together when you were coming down from GK
and we were still staying at Nossob but were on a drive north. :thumbs_up:

Thanks Duke. :thumbs_up:

Great LS to get an id I hadn't tried to id that one yet.

LS, Landy1 said that on morning of 24th just after he left the hide (thus he missed it), leopard appeared at hide and walked down fence towards campsite. :mrgreen:

That must have been Balete... Sounds like a familiar behaviour. :lol:
But good to know it was Landy1 who saw her. :dance:

@spanishwolf - This is Tsamma, a young female, grownup cub of Barolong. :thumbs_up: When and at what time did you see her? In the past, she has been seen from Kamqua to 13th borehole. Thanx for posting! :D

Richardj and Lionspoon - Thanx for posting and great sightings of N!xau and Balete! :dance: :thumbs_up:
