2009 Digital Calendar photo description

"Laughing Leopard"


Late afternoon in the Mashatu Game Reserve in Southern Botswana, this young Leopard

was savouring the late afternoon sun on the soft sand of a riverbed when it

suddenly rolled over several times enjoying the process and appearing

to be laughing hilariously at its own antics


Leopard  Panthera pardus


Leopards rest by day and part of the night in trees or dense undergrowth

and usually only become active at dusk.
