Lazy leopard in tree, Serengeti I believe this was our 3rd or 4th spotting of a Leopard in the Serengeti, this one being spotted by ourselves.

The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus ''Panthera''. It is a member of the Felidae family with a wide range in regions of sub-Saharan Africa, West Asia, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia to Siberia. Fossil records found in Italy suggest that in the Pleistocene it ranged as far as Europe.
