Wahu

NAME: Wahu

GENDER: Male

AGE: (2017) 19 years

WEIGHT: (2013) 57.2Kg (2014) 57.2Kg (2015) 62.2Kg

ORIGIN: Omaruru

SIBLINGS: None

ARRIVED AT AFRICAT: 13 June 1998

REASON FOR CAPTIVITY: Cannot be set free for he was hand-raised and has now become too habituated. Tame leopards that are released back into the wild can be very dangerous, for they lose their natural fear of man.

 

Wahu is one of our leopards at AfriCat's Carnivore Care Centre.

WAHU has been at AfriCat since he was a week old. A farmer contacted AfriCat to pick up a cheetah cub that he had just caught on his farm. We rushed to its rescue only to find that it was actually a leopard cub. Wahoo’s eyes were still closed as he was just a few days old. Due to his young age he had to be hand-reared which has obviously habituated him and he is unsuitable for release. He currently lives in a 12-acre enclosure here at AfriCat and is regularly seen by school groups and guests. Wahu is one of AfriCat’s great ambassadors!
