I have great news to share with all that known this beautiful leopardess of ours. Rockfig jnr leopardess is a mom for the first time.
This was confirmed on Sunday when she laid in front of the vehicle. In the first image one can clearly see the characteristic brown patch around the nipple of Rockfig jnr. This indicates that her cub(s) have been drinking from her.
I found her feeding on a grey duiker antelope, which she had in a tree. Feeding lasted 2 days before she disappeared in the Machattan River. I suspect that the cubs must be very close, as in typical female leopard habitat they tend to stay close to the cubs for the first few months.
We are all very excited and can‘t wait to see the new cubs. But I am afraid this will be at least a few weeks before we will see the new cubs.
