What an exciting time Kate, good luck on finding the den. I await your success and the success of the Ximnungwe female in raising her new litter.

Thanks for the update Kate on Ximungwe female. It’s exciting to learn she’s given birth and like you and the rest of the team, I can hardly wait to see them. Happy hunting!

Thank you, Kate. We have followed the Ximungwe family (Mashaba, Ximungwe, Ntomi) for a bit. Best sighting was of grandma, momma and son in 2022. Let’s keep it going!

How strange, fascinating and magical to see the little cubs kicking in utero! Paws crossed for another successful litter. This little mama has done a great job raising two cubs so far, so let’s hope the trend continues.

Hi Kate, I followed through the months and years this excellent mum raising her son. He was so much larger and heavier than her in the last year and so demanding. She is a great mother and hopefully she will be able to provide food and safety for her future cubs. Waiting for more details!

We haven’t seen the Ntomi male in a bit???

Thanks for the information on the Ximungwe female, and trying to find her den. I am sure it is mammoth task riding around and looking to see if you can see her. She is such a beautiful leopardess and had success in raising two male cubs in the past. Let’s hope you Rangers and Trackers can find her quickly so we can see those little cubs.

Congratulations on your December discovery of the pregnant Ximungwe Female. Good luck to you and Equalizer as you pursue her den!

Exciting news, Kate. I saw her mating with the Maxim’s male in August. So it’s great news to hear that she has given birth to a cub or cubs. Good luck for finding the little ones and good luck to the mother!

Kate, Thanks for the update and story about the latest Leopard dynamics. We are sure you will find those cubs – we have faith!
