Thanks for the comments, was a wonderful sighting.
We also saw Barolong, but with out her cubs at Urikaruus on the 8th Dec, she came to drink twice.

So it's time to announce the names of Barolong's two new cubs. After discussing it with Lion Queen, Enrico and Jacliz we have decided to call them Tshidi (larger leo and the one i posted pics of on behalf of Enrico) and Seleka (smaller one).
They are named after two of Tau's (a great Barolong chief) sons. At the moment we are not sure of the leopards sex but i'm assured that they can be used for either male or females.
Lets hope they become regulars to both Urikaruus, this thread and the project.

Thanx :D

@ anne-marie
:wink:

This here was our first sighting of one of Barolong's cubs.
That time we couldn't find the second one or even Barolong, no matter how hard we looked for them...

Again about 3km south of Urikaruus on the 15th of November 2012 at 12.45am
