Wonderful news to announce about our ocelots in Kabalebo. Lotje introduced her third cub in front of the trophy cam.
After Spotje, her second daughter, left her mother, Lotje kept a low profile for quite a while. In the months August and September she started to show up regularly. We had our suspicion that she might have given birth, she looked a little skinnier then we were used to see.
Second to notice: whenever Spotje met her mother at the feeder, Lotje tried her utmost best to chase her daughter away.
That is where we were certain that she became once again a mother, so in time she would bring her third cub to the feeder. Our patience was rewarded on October 20, 2015. Lotje came with her third cub to the feeder …. a male ocelot. In the video below you can see Lotje with her little one exploring the area before leaving.
I'll keep you posted!
