Rockfig Jr. introduces her cubs…

By Morné Hamlyn on December 17, 2009

Two little fluff balls made their appearance when we followed her to an unexpected den site not too long ago…

We knew she gave birth about 4 – 5 weeks ago but was’nt sure where exactly she had them hidden.
First time mother, Rockfig Jr.
She stopped to rest close to a massive dead Leadwood that fell over. Then to our surprise she called for cubs and the young ones showed up for a drink!!

Enjoy the pictures of our new Leopard family.

    I remember seeing Rockfig Junior as a cub just a couple of years ago.

    I hope Rockfig Junior’s parenting is as good as her mother.

    What a golden opportunity to follow these little ones as they grow up. I wish you and your team could follow the story and keep it going here.

  6. Unbelievable! We saw Rockfig Jr when she was still pregnant, and am so pleased to see photos of her cubs.

    I would do anything to hold one of those cubs – they are too cute.
