I dont believe it ...I saw your post just now Tabs :oops: :oops: :oops:
I'm sorry :oops: ....Yes I had read it before but it was difficult to observe these spots at cam pics...At last I decided to look at the spots over the eyes and at both cheeks, even the two brother cubs had different patterns there ...So I could ID them from one side or from the other or front Laughing out loud

Hi Guest...who are you...??? Nice you find your way here...I hope we will see you again ...and I hope Africam will find their way soon, giving us a chance to see again pictures like that....
For me wildlife cams are an excelent way for all the people around the world to know and love wild animals and maybe some day such sad incidents will be decreased.............

Hi friends ...this is my last post here...There are many nice pics at my hard drive but I dont want to bring problems to anyone...I can understand that it is very difficult to tell who owns what...but it would be nice to discuss old memories...while we are waiting for new experiences....
OK no problem at all here..I'm so happy with this new Boma Laughing out loud and I will be happier with a new virtual game drive cam Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

Fantastic story Tabs...I can understand how you felt...It's strange but I fell in love with these cats just looking at their eyes into the cam...I have never seen a leopard alive...I have never travel there...But it was like I knew them ...like they were members of my family...I could ID them from their spots and scars .....I saved many pics and printed some of them...It was too sad that they got shot... :cry: :cry:

That is exactly how the reserves ID the cats and individual elephants Fani so well done you for being able to do this!

Leopards are ID-ed by the 'spots' on each side of their nose, roughly where the whiskers are. These spots are like a fingerprint, no two leopards have the same configuration.
Lions and elephants are mostly ID-ed by scars and tears in their ears and additionally, in the case of the Ellies, by the length and shape of their tusks.
They can also tell whether an ellie is left or right 'handed' by which tusk is worn down the most.

It seems incredible that elephants, like humans, can favour one side or the other and I sometimes wonder whether this applies to any other mammals. I really must ask on the WLC forums!
