It did, thanks!

You're welcome Arya. Project Noah functions on the basis of individual nature sightings, species, time and location-wise. The system is built in such a way that a different spotting needs to be created each time for this. For each spotting you can upload up to 6 images + 1 video. In the particular case of Panthera leo there are several sub-species recognized and it would be particularly important that they are documented separately. I hope this answers your question!

Thanks for the heads up Daniele. I'll create a different spotting for the South African Lion. Do you know why they require different listings to plot average spottings?

Hi AryaMansourzadeh, and welcome to Project Noah! It is great to see pictures of these magnificent great cats in the wild! Thank you for your detailed notes. As these animals are from two very distinct geographical locations, they should be uploaded as separate spottings as per Project Noah's rules. Also make sure to indicate the right spotting date for each sighting. You can find more rules and guidelines for Project Noah on our FAQ page. Welcome again!
