KTP Leopard: Kabelo

Unread post by jenand »

Kabelo in Sesotho/Setswana/Sepedi which means Inheritance/something that has been given to you.

Here's a pic of Kabelo from the sighting that wanderw mentioned.

Hi all,

we stayed at Kgalagadi NP on February 2014. We were lucky to spot two different leopards. But one them was a little bit far away. Here are the pics.

Nr. 2 was on 17.02.2014 close to Roiputs waterhole
