I learned the other day that my favorite leopard, Olive, had been killed by lions. She had given me hours of great viewing and photographic opportunities. She was an amazing huntress, great mother to her various cubs that she raised to adulthood and even though almost all leopards are quite beautiful, I think she was a supermodel in the leopard world. She was about 12 years old which is getting up there is leopard years but still quite vital and had recently raised more cubs. When I last saw her in 2011 she almost met her maker at the tooth and claw of a big male lion only to escape at the last second...it was only a matter of time before her luck ran out. You have left your legacy in the now adult and almost adult cubs that you raised and will inherit your territory.
Rest in peace beautiful lady...you will be missed.
