Yes. So my family is from Ghana and I named my Hermann’s Otsokrikri (oh-choh-kri-kri), which is the name for the month of March in the Ga language. This leopard is going to be the Ga word for May. It is actually spelled with a different Alphabet, but the closest I can spell it in English is Agbiena (Ahhg-bee-ena).
What does the Ga language mean?

So...just checking again. Anyone have a better idea of whether Agbienaa is really a female? She's at least 4 1/2 years old, just at 12 inches long and 3700g. IMG 5810

She's beautifully light in color. I like that.

I also think it looks female. My male at that size was an obvious male!
Thanks! I was excited when I first saw her. She had a very dry start and a lot of pyramiding before I got her, but she's still pretty. Also thanks for input. I'm thinking girl too, but just wasn't sure with how the anal scutes look.
