Locations of sightings

Borupan Wila, Walas Wala

First Sighting

20th July 2014 at 5.35pm

  • 20th July 2014 at 5.35pm 1 sub adult (approximately 1 year and six months) male Leopard at Walas Wala. Having studied its spot pattern I realized that it is Borupan Wila Male Cub 2 (BWMC 2) N 08.41419, E 080.03077.
  • As I arrived at the water hole from Borupan Junction I spotted the leopard seated at the edge of the bund. After a while it moved down and started to sniff the localities where the two cubs had been playing the previous day. Its agitation was quite visible as it had its body close to the ground and was wagging the tip of its tail sideways. Thereafter it cautiously moved towards the water hole and drank. After quenching its thrust the young leopard settled down on the bund. I left, as we were already late to reach the park entrance. (with guide podi Danushka)

  • 15th February 2014 at 2.18pm as we approached the Thimiri Wila end of the Borupan Wila we heard frantic alarm call of a troop of Grey Langur. I stopped the vehicle and started to look around but filed to spot any leopard. Around 2.30pm Danushka spotted one leopard, a sub adult male across the water body. N 08.42696, E 080.02039
    The young leopard walked on the edge of the forest and was alerted by the presence of an Indian Peafowl that flew off with the approach of the leopard. It walked for about 100 meters in the direction of Borupan Junction and entered the forest. This is my sighting of this animal. I named it Borupan Wila Male 2 (BWMC 2). (With guide podi Danushka)
