Do females with cubs become less aggressive in a fight (assuming the cub is not being threatened) because they know their cubs depend on them?

Leslie,

Leopards in general try and avoid being injured in a fight, as they are solitary animals and any injury can be detrimental to their hunting ability and ultimately their survival. Females with cubs are generally more aggressive towards other leopards as they are being protective over their cubs. In this instance it seems as though Tutlwa moves off before Mashaba gets more aggressive with her. I hope this helps!

EPIC footage!
I can’t believe that lightning ball of fury they form at about 0:21 in.

Well done guys!!

If they are both from vomba/camp pan, doesn’t that make them full sisters? They both have the same parents.

Hi Todd, although they have the same parents they are from different litters and thus half sisters. If they were born in the same litter, then they would be full sisters. Hope that explanations helps. rich

I thought half sisters were when they shared only one parent. If they share the same parents they are just sisters. They are just not litter mates. If they were to be genetically tested they would be considered full sisters. Like most human siblings they don’t share a uterus, but they share the same genetics. Being siblings is about the gentics they share, not about being littermates. Just my two cents. Lol. Awesome blog.
