The leopard, a member of the Felidae family, has a broad distribution across certain parts of Africa and tropical Asia, spanning from Siberia and South/West Asia to most of sub-Saharan Africa.
Leopards are agile and stealthy hunters. Despite being smaller in size compared to other members of the Panthera genus, they are capable of capturing large prey thanks to their robust skulls, which provide powerful jaw muscles.
The typical length of a leopard’s head and body ranges from 90 to 165 cm, while the tail can measure between 60 and 110 cm. Male leopards are approximately 30% larger than females, weighing around 30 to 91 kg, whereas females weigh between 23 and 60 kg.
