Leopards feed on a variety of animals. Tortoises are hard prey to get to because of their hard shells. It looks like the leopard is more curious than hungry, however.

Recognised as one of South Africa’s foremost Wildlife Animal Watercolour Artists, Sue Dickinson’s work is highly regarded and collected the world over.

In 2002 Sue moved to the Lowveld, where she is only 60 km from the Kruger National Park. Her reputation as an award-winning artist keeps growing and growing.
