Very interesting! The Leopard is my favorite animal and I have watched quite a few, but have never seen or even heard of this happening. Thanks for sharing.

Great blog, Kevin! I hope they will still be interacting when we get there in August!

Great article, and I am sure this happens much more than is witnessed. Here is a paper done by Tara Pirie of a sighting on Djuma with mother Karula, 2 young cubs, her older cub Induna and the 3 cubs suspected father Yambilu-Jordaan. An amazing thing to witness. https://www.flipsnack.com/7BBFAECF8D6/social-interactions-between-a-male-leopard-2014.html

We have seen this behavior a few times in the Northern Sabi Sands with Karula and her cubs most notably was Yambilu Jordaan and his offspring 2008 Mixo & Induna again with 2010 Xivndzi & Xivambalana. A guide who worked for WildEarth did her doctorate thesis on just this type of behavior. As she always said, the leopards don’t read the books!
