Looks like leopard’s are more successful in encounters with porcupines than my dogs! Great pictures! Beautiful animal!

Join the club, Sam: last summer my two Labrador retrievers chased a porcupine AND a skunk on the same day. Such a mess… Here in Canada only pine marten (”fishers”) and wolverines can kill a porcupine sliding their heads under its belly and opening it with their claws. This leopard is very clever. What a magnificent animal. Beautiful pictures, Adam. Looking forward to visit Londolozi next year to see all this in real life.

I hope he doesn’t get an infection from the quills. He’s beautiful.

Great pics of one of my favorite leopards. Glad he was able to lose the quills.
