Just got back from a wonderful time in KTP.
Had 2 awesome leopard sightings :dance: :dance: south and north of monro, unfortunately I cannot identify them.
@AstroMatt I have filled out the form and mailed a few pictures. Will be awaiting the response.
As soon as time permits I will post a couple of pictures.
Thanks again for the advice.

There is a leopard live at the Nossob webcam.

After comparing the back of the head of the leopard I can confirm that it is Langklaas.
She is looking quite thin and drinking quite a bit of water.

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

Poor Langklaas! Hoping that she recovers from whatever is wrong with her.

Here are a few picture of Warona as identified by AstroMatt.
Both my sightings on 2 seperate days were of her.
On both accassions she was stalking but missed.
on the first ocassion she pounced twice to attempt to catch a squirrel.
On the second ocassion she was stalking a guinea fowl, started crawling until onother bird which saw her let off warning signals and the guinea fowl flew away.
