An amazing sight during our recent trip to Ululapa was watching a female leopard teaching her 5-month old cub to acquire a taste for fresh meat.

She had caught a small warthog as the appetiser but the cub persisted in try to suckle on her mother.

However, firm discipline carried the day and the cub was last seen tucking happily into the nether regions of the warthog head.
