Safari's new cub!!! (First pictures)

Well here he/she is ... the very first glimpse of Safari's cub!!! Andre De Kock, of Arathusa (http://www.arathusa.co.za) snapped these two pics on the 23rd December 2008 on Arathusa, which is right next door to Djuma on the western side.
Safari moved her cub, very normal at this early stage to a new 'secret' location. WE will never know if there was ever two cubs or if only one was born. usually two are born, but if the mother feels that she is unable to effectivley bring two up, she will leave one behind on the first move. :-( Safari is about 13 years old and she has had many litters. WE all think this will be her last cub, and look forward to getting to know the new addition to our WildEarth family.
Happy New Year Safari. You sure are quite a leopard ...
