This leopard was called Piva on Londolozi, and he was an incredibly impressive animal. At 7, he held a great territory and was one of the largest leopards in the area. When I was there in May, on our first game drive we found him having a territory stand-off with another male; and it was so interesting to watch the dynamics of the two animals.
Sadly, I read that this leopard was killed by a pride of lions over the weekend. The circle of life and the battle for space and resources can oftentimes be a cruel one to watch.
