Leopard

Leopards are one of the four ‘big cats’ of the genus Panthera. They range in size from 1 to almost 2 meters long, and weigh between 30 and 70 kg. Females are typically around two-thirds the size of males. Most leopards are light tan or fawn with black spots, but their coat color is highly variable. The spots tend to be smaller on the head, larger and have pale centres on the body. Leopards are highly successful predators that hunt a wider variety of prey than other big cats. They feed on insects, rodents, fish, and larger game such as antelope. In much of its range in Africa leopards compete with animals such as the Spotted Hyena and the lion for prey, and it is not uncommon for them to be chased away from their own kills by other top predators. Leopards usually hunt at night or at dawn or dusk.
