Very interesting to see here return west and to be mating with the Marthly Male. Thanks for the update.

How lovely to see them return to their ‘roots’. Such gorgeous creatures, and thankfully they have a safe haven. Thank you!

Wow! What a shock to see Xidulu mating with Tyson (Marthly Male). She has been a successful leopard mother and hopefully has a few more cubs to raise. Sad news about her recent litter and 5:5, though. In the last year Xidulu has ceded part of her territory to her independent daughter, so perhaps gaining some land on Londolozi is all part of a plan.
I like Tyson but I really like 5:5 too. He has some heart and a great background [mother = Dudley Riverbank]. He is getting challenged by some of the toughest (and biggest!) males around— Camp Pan and now Marthly Male. I think there is another big male to his north. Hope 5:5 can tough it out!
Thx for update!
