I've just checked on our Leopards and the den is empty and I can't see them on the other two cams either, so they are playing hide and seek this evening Very Happy

Caught mum sitting on top of a rock this morning.

Then she was off on her usual trip around the rock.

Checked all three cams and can't see the cubs at the moment but this isn't unusual for them to be hiding somewhere.

Great pics LW Thanks. I suppose the Cubs are following instinct, and staying hidden from sight untill Mumtells them to come out, its exactly what they would do in the wild

Well at the moment WS we have one cub chewing on a rather large bone

No sign of mum or the other two cubs.......I think they are all playing a grand game of hide and seek today......or mum is keeping them hidden because she knows I keep noseying in Very Happy

Don't know where our Leopards are today, I have checked all 3 cams and they are no where to be seen.
The Creek is looking rather lush.

and in the Den and the Lair they have new toys to play with.


Maybe the Leopards will make an appearance later or are they already starting to be elusive!!!!

They may not have been in sight Littlewid, but it was lovely to see their home inside and out.

Checked on our leopards and they are being as elusive as ever, toys everywhere again and the lair looks really lush, very green. It is also raining in Estonia at the moment, so it's not just us with the bad weather. The Leopards must be sheltering somewhere but deffo out of sight.

I'm delighted, I have managed to get one quick shot of mum this morning, at first it seemed as though no-one was around again, then mum walked into the nest cam and then straight out again and just disappeared. No sign of the cubs anywhere though.

Checked in on our Leopards. No cubs around but mum has been doing one of her favourite walks, through the stone tunnel, round the back and then through all over again, she does this many times, I don't think it's because she is bored because she can get down to the creek, it just seems one of her things that she likes to do.

I was just about to shut the Leopard cam down when I noticed a cub in the doorway of the den, I think this is where they may hide sometimes as he then disappeard down there with a bang, presumably with the toy he was playing with.

WOW Well done for capturing mum, I do like the look of their enclosure and hope it's plenty big enough for them all.

Thanks for checking.

Thanks guy's. I have been on the lookout for a cub for days now and today I got his backside Very Happy

Lai that enclosure is fairly big but I don't think it's huge. They have the Den and then the Lair, that looks fairly big and it leads to the creek but I think they are both joined so its not like they have acres of land to roam in but I do think its an ok size and I also like the fact they have three different areas and not just one and have nowhere else to go. Mum also seems quite big so again I get the impression they are well looked after and mum does seem quite agile so I don't think her good weight is becuase she doesn't have room to exercise but I must admit that watching her today going round and round the stone tunnel she looked like she was on a mission to run a marathon Very Happy

I always worry they don't have enough space, from the angle of the cams the area looks good but who knows? If they had masses of room they probably wouldn't use it anyway.

I reckon the cubs are in hiding again Lai but great you got mum, that is her favourite spot by the looks of it.
I reckon as there is no competition for area they may not use the whole area if it was larger, no reason to patrol and mark the territory really, they are safe in knowing that patch is theirs and I am sure they must be governed as to how large an area must be for them, or at least I hope they are. Also if they are getting regular food there is no need to walk miles to hunt out prey. The sad fact though is that their natural instincts are not being used, as in hunting and patrolling and marking, but the sweet side of it is they are safe if thats any compensation.
