Kgalagadi leopard identification

Unread post by groenlandy » Wed Sep 06, 2017 3:47 pm

Hi all,
Had a lovely sighting of a leopard on our second morning in the KTP on 18 August at Houmoed.
I have not yet had time to try ID, but suspect it is a well-known leopard, as others reported seeing one at this waterhole on several subsequent days.

@gannet - Lovely sightings of Urinanib, Miera and Sefefo(one of Tswana's cubs). You sure had a great KTP trip! Thanks for posting here. :thumbs_up:

@groenlandy - You were very lucky to have a lovely sighting of the Auchterlonie Female, quite a mature female these days. She is looking in good condition. What time did you see her on the 18th? Also, many thanks for posting here. :gflower:

Thanks for the ID wanderw ... we saw her from 08:00-08:30 in the morning, coming north along the ridge, drinking (for a VERY long time, very relaxed), and then eventually disappearing over the western dunes
