    1. Whoops ... Saw a cheetah and this leopard same day and got it mixed up :-)) Thanks!

      We had followed this leopard for over an hour and she wasn't having much luck hunting "more appropriate" food. I guess, when you're hungry, you're hungry!

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.

Compared to other members of Felidae, the leopard has relatively short legs and a long body with a large skull. It is similar in appearance to the jaguar, but is smaller and more.. more
