Loved watching the cub scampering down the tree!

It was very entertaining to see the cub come scampering down the tree to hide from the elephants.

Sean, that is really enchanting footage of the 3 Rivers female and her cub. I saw her 5 years ago when she was about 6 months old, and she has done incredibly well just to survive after her mother was killed when she was still young. I see her (likely) father is down as Piva, which would make her part of the mother leopard dynasty.

The Three Rivers Female has done so well and it is great that she is now raising her own cub. Yes she is essentially related to the mother leopard. We normally only trace the lineage through the mother’s bloodline because we can know for sure the lineage. It is not always accurate to follow the father’s because we are not 100 percent sure he is the father unless one does a DNA test.

Hello Sean, thank you for sharing such beautiful images of motherhood , the cub is delightful and symbol of life that goes on as well as the Iniathini male, gorgeous, both conveying hope for the species and and for us. Long life to Inyathini male!

Thank you, Francesca. It was such a delightful sighting of the mother leopard and her cub.

What a great encounter between the elephants and the leopards.
It is also nice to know that the 13-year-old male leopard is still in good health and can enjoy his life.
Thanks for sharing these videos.

Thank you, Christa. It was such an amazing sighting and to see the leopards up in that tree was amazing.

Sean, fabulous leopard sightings! Thank you!

Thank you, Michael and Terri.

Hi Sean, the Three Rivers leopard and her cub were a good sighting. The little cub is so precious and is learning something new everyday. It got a fright with the elephants approaching and made a line for safety. The Inyathini male is still a beautiful leopard, although being 13 years , he is still looking good.

The little cub is so playful, and yes it did make a sudden flee for cover as the elephants approached.

The Inyathini male certainly looks incredible for his age, did I detect and slightly lower lip on the left from an old battle wound? For such a little cub he certainly managed that tree so well, super spending so much time with Three rivers female ..a real treat Sean ! Thanks for sharing 🙏🏻❤️

OMG, so exciting, the cub is learning very fast-fantastic. Thanks for that video

A nice drive Sean. Nice to see the leopards and the dub is so cute. Enjoyed watching. Thank you.

Thank you, Leonie.

Hi Sean. What a brilliant sighting and so well photographed. Thank you so much. Do hope this little Leopard grows up and matures and becomes well known as an adult. Keep these sightings coming, Sean!

Hi Wendy, thank you so much. It will be so great to see this little cub survive and thrive.

Beautiful female leopard! Fascinating! Thanks for the video!

Thank you, Paul. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Oh my goodness, that little cubbie just launched himself out of the tree! And it is interesting how nervous he was to climb up the angled fallen trunk, preferring to go right up the main trunk of the tree!
