…and now meet ‘Tolstoy’, his brother. We have just fitted a GPS tracking collar (you can see the dark band) to this lion so that we can very closely monitor his movements. Together with his two brothers they control the eastern side of Ongava. But with recent changes in the occupancy of the central area, these ‘Ongarangombe’ males have started to expand their territory. We hope to be able to monitor the rate and extent of that expansion.

Mind you, his brother was about 20m away closely attending to a female... So perhaps not all that relaxed at all...

We are trying some new camera trap positions in the coming weeks, so hopefully we'll have some interesting images to show...

 

Here’s that collared male leopard again. How about that for a tummy! And a rather interested drinking partner...
