My heart stopped when I read about that poor young male leopard found dead! Could you please give some description of his looks, whiskerline spots, shape of necklace, estimated age etc.??

Thank you for beautiful pictures.

Talley, the only crocs I want you to measure are those rubber shoes!
Great photos, especially the impala. Agreed that they are interestingly elusive!

Was the lion that was taken down a full-grown one or a subadult?

Sad to hear about the young male leopard. Has he been identified yet? Loved seeing that the lovely tailless Tsalala grandma is in such great condition. So many wonderful photos. Loved them all. Thank you.

HI TALLEY,
THANKS AGAIN FOR THE AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHS AND YOUR BLOG.
IT IS SAD ABOUT THE DEAD LEOPARD, I HOPE THAT WE SOON FIND OUT WHAT IT DIED FROM. PLEASE KEEP US POSTED ON THIS DEVELOPMENT. IT IS ALWAYS SAD TO SEE A DEAD ANIMAL, ESPECIALLY A LEOPARD!
KIND REGARDS,
TED.

Wonderful photography. You captured so many moments in pictures and words. I am excited about retuning this October to see the familiar faces of the Tsalala pride as well as the many leopards I photographed last year.

Hey Talley!
This is Guillaume Zublena, I recognized some of your pictures since I was lucky enough to be in your Range taking the same ones…! I like your eye, you are doing a fantastic job, as a photographer with your 400mm (if I recall correctly) and as a charming ranger, please keep up the good work, we had a wonderful time with you!
Thank you again!
Best,
G

Hi Talley,

If one of the guys can find a nice clear rear footprint of one of the “monster crocs” ( and measure from tip of front toe to heal) I will be able to use a table which we have created and use to size crocodiles to tell you how long “Gustav and his mates are” and probably how heavy they are . This table has been created using the measurement of 1000’s of crocodiles and is accurate to within 10% (unless a tail has been bitten off!) and is used for the wild crocodile census which is performed for CITES purposes every 4 years. Just completed the Namibian wild crocodile census and 2010 RSA census figures show some 7500 adult (longer than 2m) nile crocodiles in the wild (Limpopo, Kruger and Northern Natal systems) .
Cheers

Hi! Guillaume told me how incredible your pictures were so I finally had a moment to take a look. Makes me miss the bush even more than I already do. I am living vicariously through your pictures, even though I feel lucky enough to have been there for some of these moments!
We hope to return soon! Be safe! xo Christina Dow (Zublena)
