Great videos. How thoroughly the wild dogs are enjoying playing around in the straw is really great.
The two leopard cubs are so cute.

So very intriguing the thatch playground for wild dogs. Hoping to see some when we’re there in two weeks.

Those cubbies are as cute as buttons Sean. Also interesting to watch the wild dogs interacting with each other. They are remarkable animals, in that they all work as a team. Thanks for sharing – enjoyed the video.

I do prefer the part with leopard mums and babies. It’s like a zen session: peaceful, beautiful. And very entertaining! You live in a unique paradise

Oh Sean that is such a good video of those leopard cubs playing, so very precious. They are quite inquisitive and it is good to see that they inspect everything. The wild dogs were a big surprise to see as they are not always the easiest animal to track. Loved to see them playing in the thatched grass. Very agile and quick to run around each other. Fantastic sighting of both the leopard cubs and the wild dogs.

The cubs’ agility and balance at such a young age is incredible.

It was impressive to see, i guess at this stage it is all about play and practice which will help them learn.

How marvelous to see both future and current predators in today’s virtual safari. Since the cubs’ video was shot a few weeks ago, fingers crossed they’re both still growing and thriving. It’s always a treat to see the wild dogs given their nature – incredible speed and oftentimes secretive behavior. After viewing today’s footage, it made me think how difficult it must be to keep track of all the new cubs given how often the mums move them from one den site to another, some impossible to reach by vehicle so thank you all for your tracking efforts.

Thank you so much, Denise. It was great to see the cubs and the wild dogs. It is a challenge to keep a track of where they are and how they are doing, but we are trying our best.

Such fabulous footage Sean! It was just great to see the antics of both Leopard Cubs (instant smile on face!) and Wild Dogs with such beautiful light from the sunset. A happy diversion from what I am supposed to be doing! We both look forward so much to these daily blogs. Thank you.

Thank you so much, Jennifer. I am glad you enjoyed this virtual safari.

I did not realize wild dogs are endangered (I suppose all these wonderful animals are so tragically). They are so incredible! My dog reminds me of them with his ears and dark face 🙂 They were the one animal we didn’t see in Kenya 🙁 And the cub footage…brilliant! The environment with their colors so special! Thank you!
