Shaka was initially spotted on the trap cameras before 2018, always in the company of a female, behind whom he displayed his manly strength by taking large steps. In the year 2018, he developed a very noticeable lesion in his nasal region, probably after an intense fight with another jaguar. The wound has healed over time and Shaka no longer has a breathing problem. African guides, who were training the team when this jaguar was first sighted, suggested the name, Shaka, after a leader of the Zulu people.
