Thanks for the link to the video Luca. :thumbs_up:
This sighting was originally posted way back on the 7th February 2012 by Afkpuz (http://www.sanparks.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=18567&start=420)
It looks like some of the old picture links have gone down so its good to have the video here.
The sighting is odd in that it is between two females, Miera and Amur. We still don't know what it was all about, possibly they are related through Khomani but from different litters...who knows.

Hi kesheshe....thanks for posting these pics. Looks like a wonderful sighting.
Could i ask you to email me a high resolution version of the 8th picture so i can have a zoom in ;)
I saw on fb that you had sightings of them on the 17th, 20th,21st and 26th....could i ask you to report all of these on my website so i have all the records.
If you could also send a photo of each leopard from each sighting that would be great.
Cheers

Thanks Kesheshe....now that Rae has solved the mystery of Warona's sex (she's female) i don't need the high res shot of the 8th picture.
Just included fairly decent images from each sighting so that i can make positive IDs and include them in my database. File sizes of around 1Mb are ideal.
