Leopards
BEHAVIOR

Leopards are solitary cats with the widest habitat range of all the big cats. They are excellent tree climbers and can take food three times bigger than themselves up into trees. Leopards are typically diurnal, meaning they are most active during the day. 

COLOR PATTERN
  • Yellow spotted coat, the spots are called rosettes
  • White belly
  • White spots on the backs of their black ears (a trait that all spotted wild cats have, which helps them communicate with their young)
