KTP Leopard: Namabies

Unread post by kittykat23uk »

We also had a second leopard sighting on 4/10 between Kij kij and Melkvlei, this one was striding along up and down a dune, stopping occasionally to wash itself and sitting down occasionally before seemingly getting spooked and running off over the dune. :dance: This was around 1400 on a rather miserable day.

If anyone can help with this ID that would be wonderful

@kittykat23uk - Many thanks for the added details about your Mofhenyi sighting. :thumbs_up:

Your second leopard you saw was Namabies - a 3 year old female. Again, thanks for all the details. I am sure this sighting turned a miserable day into an amazing one. :wink:
