Hlabankunzi is back and announcing her territory in style!
After all the drama she has had to deal with in the last 2 months it is no wonder she has been keeping a low profile.
With her cub safely stashed in the east she was back at Leopard Hills the other night, a mere 500m from the lodge scent marking and roaring like I’ve never heard a female leopard roar before!
I’m sure all other female’s considering taking this prime territory promptly scurried off the other way! She is also possibly calling the Xinzele male, letting him know where she is (away from the cub) so he thinks there might be a chance to mate.
Enjoy the video below, especially the roaring, turn up the volume at the end!
