I have fond memories of 2006, Mike - I was at LK right at the end of August that year! I think I saw a Leopard and cub too with Doctor!

I love all these photos; I have to say that even the baby hippo is appealing. Ugly babies simply aren't very common; however, one major exception is crocodiles.

Hari, it's indeed the same cub that you saw with Doctor.

I'm posting pictures of the mother, in 2006 and in 2009, on "Show us your leopards". When I came back in 2011, they told me that, in the meanwhile, it was dead.
