First Sighting

18th October 2019 at 5.25pm

  • 18th October 2019 at 5.25pm one Leopard between Galwanguwa and Humbas Wala. N 08.36215, E 080.08836

    The animal was partly covered by the bushes but much to our relief moved out after a few minutes. It was a young male cub of about 7 months. With the arrival of a few more vehicles the leopard moved back in to the forest. Later the examination of its spot pattern revealed that this is the Galwanguwa Leopard 1 that I had listed under “Leopards of Wilpattu Guest” section on my site. He is the first litter cub of Maradanmaduwa Female 2. This is my first sighting of this young Leopard and I named it Galwanguwa Male 1 (GWMC 1). With guide Tissa Ratnayake
