YES SAF!!!!
I really thought it would weigh at least 80 kg. It's huge.
This Leopard is by far the biggest I've ever seen.
It's all a big boy! :mrgreen:

Great images and sightings

Previously also uploaded an image of the big mail just before Paul Kruger Gate and presume it is the same one (page 82).

Does any one know why he have a collar around his neck?

This is an incredible series of photos taken at a sighting with a leopard fighting a python.
It was seen on the S1 near Skukuza

Incredible sighting. I wonder how often pythons are attacked by cats in the wild?

Fantastic sighting :dance: But I'm very surprised that the leopard allowed the python to escape into the water :shock:
Does anyone know what bird is calling in the background?


I was wondering the same thing.

Wow Stoffel, sounds like you've had some unbelievable luck over the years. What I like about all your sightings is that you guys stayed put and waited. I think that's the trick, if there is any sign of a predator in the area, I say hang around and see what happens. Patients is the key!

Thanks for sharing :thumbs_up:


Just ran across a picture of "the great escape" from my earlier top 3 leopard sightings posting! Image
