unbelievable.
Tu tones has grown a lot, Tyson is a beast, but there is not much size difference or not?

Wow! What a powerful sighting! It must have been amazing, intense and maybe even a little distressing all at the same time. It was remarkable to see a leopard kill a warthog sow, let alone the 2 males contesting it. Hope Tu Tones gets himself a good meal.

It’s great! Very rare moment.
Londolozi is the best place in the world for the leopards.

Fantastic write up Simon & amazing pictures Foster. Unfortunately nature is harsh, but not as bad as MAN!!! It is survival of the fittest & I hope Tu Tones got to grab himself a meal

Hi Tim, Tutones was born in 2008 and Marthly male in 2001, SO the Marthly male is almost twice his age.

Once again a tribute to why one never tires of life at Londolozi.
And when it is new to Elmon, it is truly special.

Amazing sighting and photography. I hope Tu Tones had better luck shortly afterwards. I suppose that young piglet could not survive on its own…sad.
