Olive Has New litter
Olive, the female leopard star of the Big Cat Live program has a new litter. She was spotted on the 27th July 2009 at Olare-Orok crossing by Mara Intrepids guides, Tappen & Simon with their guests in the morning carrying a cub. She headed to the junction of the Talek and Olare-Orok rivers where there is some thick riverine forest. She has been seen in the location very often from that day. It is not clear yet if she has another cub. We are monitoring her closely to establish this.
This will be her 3rd litter in a row after the twins, Ayah and Binti, Kali and now the new litter. It will be of great interest to observe how they will all interact. The interaction of Kali and his sisters has been an unusual behaviour among leopards and will be good to observe how they will all behave with an additional litter.
I will post a picture of her with cub here as soon as i get it from the guests who took it that morning.
