Thanks Jan for sharing yet more amazing photos.

A question that's been on our minds for ages now - why do the young Kgalagadi lions have leopard like rosettes? Not noticed this on other lions.............

Jelico nearly all lion cubs have the spots. The older they get the less prominent they become.

Thank you Jan for the sympathy with me for loosing all my photos due to a hard drive failure and for posting more of those stunning playing young lions photos. Thanks also WilleV for those Leeudril males pictures. That area of the park seem to be 'very hot' for all kinds of sigtings. We saw a male leopard there in Àpril 2012.

Thank you WillieV for posting yet another stunning photo of these cheetahs at a waterhole. I wonder if you can remember which waterhole they were at? FMJ
