So this will be a combination of the Sunsetbend and Mother Leopard lineage since the Piva Male’s mother is Nottins 2:2, thats awesome, thnx Simon!

Thanks for the update Simon, this has always been one of my favourite leopards. Do you still see the Tamboti Young Female with her mother?

Thanks for this blog. What you said seems so true! It is so difficult for a female leopard to raise a cub to independence. The presence of a strong male without competition from other males can make a huge difference. The beautiful Tamboti female and Piva male should have great offspring.

Piva male is extremely big for his age so a bright future for the females here
