Continuing the drama from the day before not one but three spotted cats were found on Chitwa Chitwa where Tingana unfortunately lost his kills to the Birmingham male lions. This time Tingana not only had to contend with young Hosana but also Thamba. All three spotted cats seemed to be tolerant of each other and each seemed to have had a little of the left overs. Two hyena skulked around the base of the large marula tree. One of the spotted scavengers managed to bully Hosana into giving up an impala leg. Eventually the kills were finishes and all the predators moved off.
The young prince was found yet again. He bounded about the Molwati drainage line full of the exuberance of a young male leopard. Eventually he wandered northwards towards the Vuyatela dam, leading us to Thandi with a nyala kill. Hosana then muscled his way in and proceeded to feed off her hard won kill. Later that afternoon he slept off his fat fluffy belly next to the soothing coolness of a full pan.
A grey morning dawned with Hosana on yet another stolen kill. This time he took his chances with his other older sister, Shadow. Shadow and her cub watched carefully as Hosana finished off the last remaining scraps of an impala ram kill. Yet the three leopards were not the only spotted predators in the sighting, five members of the Djuma hyena clan lurked in the thickets waiting for any chance to make off with a piece of meat.
