Animal - Leopard

Leopard (Panthera pardus)

A big Tom stands 60cm/23” tall at the shoulder. They do not form prides. After mating, the female rears the cubs. Leopards have rosette-shaped spots, compared to the Cheetah which has solid black spots. Leopards have a vocal that sounds similar to wood being saw. Nocturnal, they are sluggish during daytime hours, resting in the shade for most part of the day. In the late afternoons, Leopards can be found scanning the environment from trees and rocky outcrops. Leopards drag their prey into trees where the danger exists that Hyena or Lion can scavenge their prey.

Penetration is easily achieved with these thin-skinned felines. Broadside and quartering away shots most advised, although full frontal shots can be successful based on good shot placement. The heart is situated low in the chest and behind the front legs. Avoid shots where the cat is lying down or looking straight at you. They have lightning fast reactions and string jump is highly likely. Wounded Leopard must be followed-up with great caution and adequate heavy caliber backup, as they do not hesitate to take revenge.
