Bruce, what a sight! I have never been to a brawl of 2 leopards, it must have been awesome, and the Flat Rock Male beat him to a pulp!

Yikes! With all this action we need Hosana to come home ASAP!

Good story, well told, Bruce! It’s so unusual that they walked alongside each other for such a distance, as if psyching each other out. I could almost hear the growls and tussles of the fight! Wish I’d been there!

How much more exciting can it get in Londolozi?! The leopard drama between the males seems to be escalating, but at least in this latest tussle, Inyathini male was not seriously injured, except for his pride.
So, are the ladies this aggressive towards each other?

I can’t imagine watching these two fight in front of you! The adrenline must have been up for everyone in the rover. Although both hurt, they will to perhaps fight again. As Inyathini ages, he may allow territory changes.

Looking through my lens I see bricks and mortar. Light falls starkly on the black tar. The vegetation of Bougainvilla and jacaranda trees stares brightly in foreign clothing. Through your lens the power and majesty of the leopard is breathtaking. The parched earth absorbs the footfall of a stealth fighter. In the veld of Africa the sights and sounds make me homesick for local beauty. Your lens is blessed indeed.
