Lessons of the Hunt
Her name is Legadema (lah-heh-deem-uh)—Setswana for "light from the sky"—and she has illuminated documentary filmmakers Beverly and Dereck Joubert's understanding of how a leopard learns and survives in the wild. Since discovering her at eight days old—and for three years following—they tracked her movements in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Watch her in these scenes from the Joubert's film Eye of the Leopard, and go behind the scenes to see how the production was made.
