Leopard is one of the most elusive and astucious of the large carnivores . It is a strongest climber of the large cats and capable of killing prey larger than itself. They are primarily nocturnal, usually resting during the daytime in trees or thick bush. Their unique spotted coat provides almost perfect camouflage.They have long been hunted for their soft fur, their claws, whiskers, and tails, which are popular as fetishes.   

Leopard populations have been dramatically reduced due to trophy hunting, habitat destruction, illegal wildlife trade and prey decline. 

They are considered a threatened vulnerable specie.
