Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
Seeing a leopard is always a supreme treat on a safari. This trip, we saw two leopard cubs. They were walking a distance away, and I didn't get any photos as I was busy watching them and trying not to lose them. As the cars gathered in the central Serengeti for a glimpse of the cubs, making it harder and harder to see them, we luckily found the mom. She was laying, then sitting, on a mound under an acacia tree. Here are two photos of her. I wish we would have been closer...but we got a great view, and we were the second car there, and soon after an onslaught of vehicles made the viewing less than peaceful. It is hard to imagine a sight more beautiful than a leopard in the wild. These gorgeous, athletic and solitary creatures are incredible, and strong enough to haul a kill up a tree in their jaws.
