KTP Leopard: Jannie

Unread post by peterpiper »

Named after Jan Kriel, an exceptional ranger that worked For Sanparks in Twee Rivieren

Great idea for a thread :)

Just realised that the leopard I saw near TR on the Nossob road last year in May, is the same one I saw this year near Munro/ Hoemoed on the Aoub road a few days ago. And she now has a fairly large cub.

And now............................., introducing her cub.

WOW! Peter! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Stunning pics! Thank you for an absolutely awesome pic of the cub as well! :clap: Do you perhaps have side-on pics of the cub's face also? I agree with AfricanDreams - I think you and AD saw the same leopard - your last pic!

Maja with Jannie.

I agree that Peterpiper's first two pics are a definite match, and also match this pic of mom and cub taken in Aug 07 some 6km's from TR.

The cub is also a match, but from PP's photo it has grown a bit since Aug.

Amazing that this little one has entertained us since March :P

Seems like this TR female is a real show off , did she grow up getting used to the higher amount of vehicles in the area that she is so comfy around visitors ?

Some more pics of the TR pair taken at saamevloieng -

Mom and cub - Maja and Jannie.

I may have seen the male the day before , but it was far off on top of a ridge , but I will try get a photo on just now (It could be the female also)

Kgalagadi TFP - thanx for your input! Great to have you back with us!

peterbee and bucky - awesome pics! :thumbs_up:

bucky - you mention what a showoff the TR female(Maja) is. Well, this last visit, even before she got close, I knew that it was her, because of her 'atitude'. She doesn't worry about cars at all, the cub(Jannie) was hesitant and as for the Leeuwdril male, he was quite skitsy - he got a fright near a car in front of us and charged back away from the road for about 100 metres. I got the impression that he would have stayed back on the dunes if it was not for Maja.

@Son godin - The Leeudril Male is the father of Jannie(born approx April 2007). However, we think the father of Kruiper(born approx July 2008) is the Houmoed Male (seen mating with Maja at the beginning of April 2008). :thumbs_up:

@Son godin - Some more info for your interest : Pic below is of the Leeudril Male, Maja and Jannie.

Image

If the Leeudril Male was not Jannie's father , he would probably have killed Jannie at this sighting in Sep 2007. Jannie growled and hissed at his dad, and got between Maja and the big male. The Leeudril male was very tolerant of the cub, and side stepped around Jannie to get to Maja.
