Leopard. Wilpattu National Park is renowned for its leopards. This one was a large male that we saw lounging about on a sand bank beside one of the many lakes. After a while he walked along the edge of the lake and our tracker guessed (correctly) that he would cross a track. We drove a high speed, reaching the track just as he emerged from the forest and disappeared. We could hear the langurs and macaques barking in alarm as he walked away from us.
