First Sighting

16th November 2014 at 5.00pm

  • 16th November 2014 at 5.00pm 1 Female Leopard between Humbas Wala and Ibba Wala. N 08.40205, E 080,05078

  • It was marking the bushes on the road and moved in to the forest. Having driven to the point where it entered the forest we spotted it lying down among the foliage about 20 feet from the road. It was a very shy animal and moved in to the forest upon the approach of another vehicle. I estimated its age to be around 3 years. Having checked its spot pattern I realized that I had not photographed this leopard earlier. I named it after the location where it was first seen as Humbas Wala Female 1 ( HWF 1).
