We found Shadow at Treehouse Dam, where the elusive cat was sleeping on a termite burrow. Shadow then awoke and spotted a warthog passing by. The leopard gave chase but the wartie managed to outrun her and disappeared into it’s burrow. Shadow dug at the burrow’s entrance but gave up after a while.
Shadow was once again at Treehouse Dam with her cub. The two were drinking from a watering hole before Shadow began to guide her cub toward a nearby steenbok kill. Unfortunately, we lost sight of them in the bush.
We found Shadow again today at Weaver’s nest junction. She was with her cub and they looked quite relaxed as they groomed each other.
