Tegwane Male Leopard mating with the Dam 3 Female

Posted on September 16, 2008

Gary and Marius had an amazing and unexpected sighting the other night.

Following up on tracks of the Tegwane Male Leopard and the Dam 3 female, who we don’t see very often, it appeared they had moved into the same block of bush, and hadn’t emerged again.

On further investigation and some skillful tracking, both Leopards were found lying up together next to a large termite mound as it was getting dark. Amazingly this is when the “incredible happened”, they mated right in front of the vehicles……….a rare sight indeed.

Thanks to Dawn Candella and Keith Giliberti for the amazing footage.
