Never a dull moment in the bush. Wow this is crazy!

Thanks for this. It makes up a little bit for all the times I felt sorry for female cats who never have any choice in the matter. They are just so roughly taken all the time!

It’s very interesting, because he obviously would have had a negligible sperm count less than half way through that marathon. So intriguing!

that is awesome, and to film it is great!

guides in the Timbavati, where i work, love telling me a story from probably the early 2000’s of a leopard fivesome!!! four unrelated female leopards doing exactly what you explain here about these three…each female literally lining up, one after the other, as the male mated with them! what i wouldnt have done to have been there myself to view that!

That sounds incredible Chad, and here we thought three leopards was extraordinary. I definitely think that the dynamic between an older female and younger female allowed for a hierachy to take place and thus no fighting between the two of them. Thanks for your comments.

Great sighting, a few years ago we had Vomba and Mxabene both mating with Manyaleti male but not with the same frequency.

Thanks for that Greg, interesting to see the Mxabene female involved in this sighting as well. I wonder what the dynamic between the Vomba female and Mxabene female was during this encounter?

Hi Rich, Vomba and Mxabene more interested in the male and not really hostile towards each other

It is quite clear that the spotted ladies love Dudley 5-5 . I saw him mating with Vomba.
Now I have a question about Tamboti female. This Tamboti is clearly the daughter of Sunsetbend female (Ngoboswan) born in 2007. (This is also the name provided by Mala Mala). But there was (and may be there is still) an other Tamboti female in Londo. This is a female I was twice (with Julius) in Londo in may 2008 and in may 2009. Kate Nicholson published on the web some good pictures of the same female (taken in MM in 2007). During my first sight this female was confuse with Xidulu/Kikelizi (but it was a mistake) . According to some info from Londo (in 2010) this female was seldom seen close to Lex extension/Old shangaan village. Do you have any info about this Tamboti (not the Sunsetbend daughter born 2007)?
