Thanks for the comments everyone. Camp Pan seems to be spending more and more time to the east of our boundary. He was last seen about 10 days ago. It will be very interesting to see what unfolds in terms of territory claiming in the next few weeks. Marthly male definitely came off best during the fight with Tu Tones male who is still licking his wounds. In fact, he is not looking all too well at the moment and we are all hoping that with a good meal and some rest, he will pick up again.

Thank you Andrea hope Tu tones just lays low until he is fully healed from that lion encounter. What kind of condition is Camp Pan in? He is getting very old now.

Hi Blair. Camp Pan seems to be doing okay but there is no denying that he is old and that does come with some changes. He is much skinnier than he used to be due to some atrophy especially on the back legs. He is in his 15th year now! Camp Pan has always been an incredibly successful leopard, so we are all hoping that we will continue seeing him for some time to come.

Great updates! Piva Male seems like a force to be reckoned with. Awesome to hear news about Camp Pan and about these battles between Tu Tones and Marthly male. The Marthly male always seemed like biggest, toughest male around and I guess he still he is (but he is getting old for a dominant male). Tu Tones seems nearly as big, but maybe not as experienced. Would like to see Tu Tones get his own territory.
