Thanks for sharing some of the reasons Tutlwa seems so elusive. She is a large, bold, beautiful female leopard and its always great to see photos of her. Her parents were Londolozi legends, Vomba female and Camp Pan Male (at least I think it was Camp Pan).
You said the male from her current litter is nearly ready for independence. Do you know if the male from her first litter is still hanging about or has he moved on? I had thought there was a female in the current litter as well, but perhaps she is no longer sighted. I hope Tutlwa’s first daughter, the Nhlanguleni female, is doing well.

She really is a beauty Simon! Hopefully she will have a new litter soon, which would be so wonderful to see!
