Marthly 3:2 Male
Date of Birth: 2001
3:2 Left hand side has a small 3rd spot
Alias: Tyson Male
The Marthly male originates from north of our boundary and was born in 2001. Seldom seen prior to 2010, this big dominant male leopard with a characteristically large mane now holds the majority of the property north of the Sand River. Sightings of him have become more frequent as he continues to extend his territory southwards. Initially he benefited from the void that was created by Manyeleti Male in the north and he has subsequently laid claim to this much sought
The Marthly Male is believed to have fathered the Nyeleti 4-4 female’s 3 cubs as well as Mbilo female and possibly the cub born to Tutlwa in Aug 2010.
He is spending more and more time around the Sand River which, historically, was controlled by Camp Pan. It would be an epic duel should these two huge males come to blows but for the continuity of the leopards on northern Londolozi it would probably be beneficial if they could resolve the dispute of the river mutually. Minutes before the below video was taken, the two males were seen in an altercation along the causeway of the Sand River. Shortly after, the Marthly 3:2 Male mated with the Vomba 2:3 Female.
