@Oumie - Thank you for posting! :gflower: Super sighting of the LIT near Kaspersdraai! :dance:

If possible :pray: , could you please post a bigger pic with higher resolution, and/or send it to AstroMatt. This could be leopard no. 50 for the project, and we are very eager to see if it can be IDed. Many thanks.

Done and dusted! :lol:
Submitted the required photograph of the leopard we saw during our first ever (August 2012) trip to KTP.
We entered the park at around 14:00 and the picture was taken on 3 August 2012 at 15:00 at Houmoed waterhole.
