I'm positive (from the spots) that this is Langklaas, the same leopard that you previously caught on the camera trap at Qubitji Quab. Do you have a rough date for when it was captured?? :pray:

@Adtormat,

I will find out for you regarding the date, I come to the conclusion that the leopard we see at Qubitji Quab i sthe same leopard the whole time.

As you all have noted it takes a bit longer now to post the pictures and the reason being that since we have received larger SD cards I can put the cams out for longer periods, although problems will always come forth as some of the areas/cams are still trail and error.

The cam I had up at Urikaruus firstly couldn’t handle the heat as some of the other cams so I took a cam from TR and put it up, then it worked BUT the distance from the cam to the waterhole was just to great and couldn’t take good night pictures. Now I have made a new termite mound which will be put up closer to the waterhole.

Currently the cams are up at Kieliekrankie, Leeuwdrill and Maries se Draai. Hopefully I will get the cards on Friday where I will then go through them and post some good pictures.

KG

@Anne-marie,

I’m hoping to capture the leopard which gave you such a great sighting and memory of a lifetime. The attendant at KK was but just too happy to have the cam at his camp. On the funny side you should here the guy’s at the wilderness camps bragging about the fact that they have a cam at their camps which makes it difficult for me as they always ask me when the cam will be at their camps.

It sure has become a hit. The cams will make their way up to some of the Wilderness camps such as Gharagab and Grootkolk.

Hi KG

Just found this thread in the week and have now caught up. What a pleasure to see these animals from a different angle, some of them looking towards the cam as if it spoke to them :D .

Thank you for all the efforts and time you put into posting the pics for us. Hope your research teams get good information from the project too.

:thumbs_up:

Morning all,

I retrieved the cam from Leeuwdril and it became clear that with all the rain that we have been having the animals can chose where they would like to drink. The calcrete ridge holds fresh water from the rains so the animals prefer to drink there. It can be seen with the amount of pictures taken by the cams.

Here are some pics from the Leeuwdril cam.
