Slender, well built cat with round ears and rosette spots for camoflage. Extremly reclusive and favours trees to sleep in and store food from scavangers and other predators. Common enemy of babbons and the two species have wins and losses in the same way lions and hyenas do.
Wide spread throughout Southern Africa except for central South Africa and true deserts.
This large young male has a few scrapes and scratches from a warthog which it caught a day ago. Here also pictured in rare siting with female as the pair prepare for mating.
