Great blog James. Does anyone know what happened to the other female (not Piva) that reached independence born in 1998?

The other sister died of Mange in March 2002. But what happened to the cub born in 2006? Could this be either the Little Bush Female or Calabash Female seen in areas adjacent to Piva Female’s territories?

Thanks for this update James. Brought tears to my eyes as it brought back memories of her mom before her and her grandmother before that going through the same ageing process. I consider it an immense privilege to have known all three of these amazing females! Be strong Nottens!
