Relaxing Kabini is synonymous for leopards up a tree, but this last trip into the jungle was prolific! I had two very long sightings, so long, we actually left and returned 2 hours later to find the leopard had not moved! :) Geotagged,India,Indian leopard,Panthera pardus fusca,Summer Click/tap to enlarge

The Indian leopard is a leopard subspecies widely distributed on the Indian subcontinent and classified as ''Near Threatened'' by IUCN since 2008. The species ''Panthera pardus'' may soon qualify for the ''Vulnerable'' status due to habitat loss and fragmentation, heavy poaching for the illegal trade of skins and body parts in Asia, and persecution due to conflict situations. They are becoming increasingly rare outside protected areas. The trend of the population is decreasing.
