Leopard resting

Leopard resting

Leopards (Panthera pardus) tend to favor rocky landscapes but they have also shown to be highly adaptable to many places in both warm and cold climates. They are powerfully built with long bodies, relatively short legs and a broad head. The leopard’s tawny coat is covered in dark, irregular spots called rosettes. The spots are circular in East African leopards but square in Southern African leopards.
