There’s a voice
That keeps on calling me
Down the road
That’s where ill always be
Oooooooo-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-oooooooooooooooo… Everyone knows the Littlest Hobo theme tune, clearly one of the pinnacles of song writing in the 20th century. This is the song that rattled round our heads when we captured his namesake, Hobo (the leopard version is actually a girl), on Lajuma last night. And it proved to be an apt name – judging from her size and dentition we estimate that she is only about a year old, and she still has still has some of her deciduous teeth.
She was too small to collar so after collecting data and samples we released her and off she ran to tell mum about the crazy night she had. Her mother, Grey, is one of our target animals for collaring, so we hope to capture her soon.
