Welcome back Lily! There was an email sent out from the main office that Paul suffered a massive heart attack. He was only 40 years old. Unbelievably sad.

Thanks Carla,
I figured it was something like that but he certainly didn't look like the kind of person to have heart disease!

That is so unbelievable and very, very sad. I'll have to post the picture that Afke took of Paul with my camera if I ever sort through my pictures.

By sheer luck I logged on exactly when this leopard appeared!!! I thought the camera was down and they were showing "Best of Mashatu" footage, but then saw the live title. Now that is one great lunch interlude!!

It's 7:30 am at the Pond right now and KayeN should be arriving at Mashatu in the next few hours. The airstrip is near the pond and the cam would be able to zoom in on her arrival. I am so excited for her and wish I was there too!!!! <)

Not sure if she is doing a morning game drive at MM then flying to Mashatu or not, so its hard to say when she will actually arrive and I doubt I can keep my eyes open long enough to watch.

Tom, I don't think Fatty will share the pond with ANYONE!!! Last year another croc tried to invade his/her territory and Fatty would have no part of it at all. Chased it away.
