Awesome pictures!!!
Spanishwolf think I know this male leopard.
I think he roams the S3, S4 , S1 and H11?
If it is the same leopard, saw him on S3 about 2km from Kruger Gate in a territorial fight
1 of the biggest leopards I have seen

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.

Possibly a Trumpeter Hornbill? :think:

I am not so sure about it's a Trumpeter Hornbill, nearly 100% but would love to know for sure.

The sighting one of those of LIFETIME , well done!!!! lucky people
