Dusk... usually the best time for the leopard to be out hunting
Panthera Pardus is the smallest of the cats in this family.
The other three ar the lion, tiger and panther
It then followed the bird into a tree where it got itself into this position...
Looking for help?
DON'T FORGET ME...
I am from the same family
This female was very special
I found her during a game drive in Madike, NW
She was my first female leopard sighting in this particular reserve
Not once, but in two consecutive game drives!
I know that this Communal Spiders web has nothing to do with cats...
I just liked the image!
We were able to spend a reasonable amount of time with her as she went about looking for a meal.
She did not kill while we were in the vicinity.
My first Madikwe male leopard sighting was 6 weeks earlier.
