This is leopard dung… in Virunga National Park. The photo was just emailed to me by Norbert - and it was taken by a Ranger in the foothills of the Rwenzori mountains - a 3-million year old mountain range also known as the Congolese Alps - in the north of the park.
As you can see the dung is dark in color and is a similar size to dog faeces. Leopards also have very sharp teeth which helps a lot with digestion which is why the dung comes out quite fine!
It is obviously excellent from a conservation perspective that we have proof of leopards in Virunga. The wildlife in Africa’s oldest national park has been depleted to a massive extent, but we remain hopeful that one day the animals populations will return to the numbers they once were.
