After comparing the back of the head of the leopard at the waterhole right now i can confirm that it is Langklaas.
She is looking quite thin and drinking quite a bit of water.

She is looking thin. And is it not unusual for leopard to drink this much Matt?

I really hope that she is just resting......and not 'you know what'

Did they upgrade the Nossob cam, it is cool how it is moving around and zoomed in ?

She is certainly looking thin, i agree there. As for how much she is drinking. It is hard to tell exactly the quantity. It is certainly weird that she would take a nap at a waterhole.
Keeping fingers crossed. :pray: :pray:

I've heard that a ranger is going to go and take a look. Lets hope they don't jump to any conclusions.

Do you know how old she is AstroMatt?

Shame, she looking fragile ... but I am sure still needs to be treated with great respect? One hears of stories of hurt/old leopards being very dangerous?

Unusually we have a pretty good idea of her age.
She was born up at Grootkolk sometime at the start of 2006. So she would be around 8 years old at the moment. Maybe its birthday blues!

She certainly does not look good, and to lie in the sun like that makes one wonder. :hmz:

She vanished at 13:27 between frame updates. Probably a good sign. Lets just hope we get a sighting of er later and can check her condition more thoroughly.

I see on the 24th of April Wanderw said that if a previous mating was successful Lanklaas might have cubs!

Could this maybe be why she is so thin???
