Seems as if he was looking to take over Mufufunyane’s (RIP) territory but Tingana beat him to it, so he moved a bit east hoping to take over Yambilu Jordaan’s (RIP) territory and found Mvula there, so he’s now moving south.

James, how did you determine the age of this leopard? Do you look at the colour of his nose-whether it is pink, black or inbetween?

James Crookes

Nic, we haven’t seen him much at all, so this was based on information from the properties that have seen him more regularly, to our north and east. The colour of the nose, however, is one feature that can be used. One would also look at the position of the ears (wider spacing is normally an indicator of an older leopard), the size of the head, scars from territorial battles etc.

He is stunning, and your photo of him face-on is fabulous. Ditto to Geri’s comment!!

Wow what a magnificent boy! Hope he stays around, would love to learn more about him and hope to see him next winter.

how does he compare in size to Tukwaan and Camp Pan males? He looks to be substantial.

James Crookes

Kiki, the Gowrie male looked very large when I saw him, but he had just eaten the better part of an impala! I think that he is a similar size to the Marthly male. Probably slightly smaller than the Camp Pan male and larger than the Tugwaan male, but that’s just based on the impression I got based on one sighting.
