Being a carnivore, the leopard’s diet varies from medium to large animals such as foxes, deers, jackals and more on it’s menu.  A skilled hunter, the Leopard is able to hide in trees and wait for anything edible to walk along their path, and with one swift bite in the neck, their prey is there’s.  Then the Leopard uses their strong jaw muscles to pull their prey up to tall trees to hide it from scavengers.


Living in wild might be hard for leopards, or is it ? These large cats can live in almost any type of habitat, including rainforests, deserts, woodlands, grassland savannas, forests, mountain habitats, coastal scrubs, shrub lands and swampy areas. In fact, leopards live in more places than any other large cat.  They live alone up in trees and wait to ambush prey.

Bing a solitary animal, the Leopard preferrers to live alone. They have 2-3 kittens when they give birth that are hairless and blind that weigh 500 grams each. After birth the mother and her kittens will live in a den for 3 months before they can leave to a new habitat. Then at 12 to 18 months Leopards will leave their mothers and live their own life. They'll live in the wild for 12-15 years, but in zooz they live up to 23 years. Right now 13,000 leopards still stand on the earths surface today.
