Karen, Thanks for starting this thread especially since the male leopard sighting from yesterday has me wondering.......
Uni, the 1st three leopards were Karuhla and her 2 cubs.
The male leopard later was the one Rexon had trouble identifying. After tossing around about 3 male leopards names, Rexon settled on Jordaan.
I thought Jordaan was a huge leopard, large enough to be confused with a lion. I do realize that maybe the size wasn't apparent (to us), since he was walking down the road and we didn't have anything to use for scale. To make matters worse was the fact we only saw his face briefly and it was a side profile.
Does anyone else think that maybe that was not Jordaan?
Hey Sag, I am also confused about Jordaan's male. I sure wish he would plop down in front of the cam one day so we could get a really good look at him.
Remember that massive male leopard that stole Karula's kill last July. Nick couldn't figure out if it was a lion or leopard. I had originally thought that might be Jordaan but now I am not so sure. That one had some distinct features that I think we would have read or heard about if it was Jordaan.
my daughter is doing a slideshow project at school. they have just started watching the game drives. she would like to do a piece on Karula and her cubs. If anyone has information of links to information about her history I woudl appreciate. I will be searching through the websites tonight but there are so many from before we joined as one.
What?? No talk of leopards for a month??? Those beautiful polka dotted kitties!!
I've been laughing all day at Angie's post on the WEBlog about how Karula came into camp last night, pulled their laundry off the line & proceeded to roll on it. True kitty "I need a man" behaviour if I've ever heard of it! I'd love to see more of the pix Pieter took. I wonder if this event will make him keep his camera around his neck at all times (except maybe when he's sleeping!!).
Aquila I have been confused ever since WE posted the fact that one of the male leopards was Tyson.
On a drive after Nick and Helen saw the leopard steal Karula's kill and she fell out of the tree, Nick said that he had checked with other rangers and that male was Tyson. He even went into how he got his name. I also found a picture in the Simbambili ranger diaries that they are calling Tyson/Tison and he matches up to the leopard Nick and Helen saw. Helen also mentioned that she had never seen that leopard before and he was bigger than Mafufanyane.
So, I am wondering if Jordaan and Tyson haven't been confused.
Hi CJ! Karen in VA and I have been trying since last year to determine who the massive leopard was that Nick and Helen saw in July 2007. We've seen pictures of Tyson from Elephant Plains and I swear I don't think it was him. He is quite a beautiful leopard and the one Nick and Helen saw...well, I hate to say it but he was really ugly. LOL I'll try to find the picture you speak of on Simbambili. Starting to wonder if there are more than one named Tyson.
Have never seen a photo of Jordaan but he is described as huge by some but not by others. I will be so glad when we finally see a good clear shot of the Jordaan's male with a positive ID. :)
Self-discipline is often estimated as an important component to be effective - be it research or profession or personal life. The traditional concept of discipline seems to be deceiving. It is often recognized as something that is associated with a set of firm guidelines, worry, power, exterior management and penalties. The misconception is probably a impact of the unnecessary attempt of most
