The sturdy legs and claws allow it to stand up from the trees. The nails are retractable, allowing it to hide them when not needed.
Sight and hearing are sharp, which, together with its sensitive whiskers, make it the perfect night-time predator.

Coloration and markings vary according to habitat; those found in open grasslands are light yellow, and those in forests are darker and more marked.
The dark, ring-shaped patterns covering the body are called rosettes, but they become substantial spots on the face and limbs, and form rings on the tail. Together they provide camouflage.
The leopard lives in Asia and Africa and can be seen in savannahs, forests, mountains, and grasslands, especially where there is prey to hunt, water, a vast territory, and places to hide.
This cat adapts very quickly to different environments, so it is easy to find it in other regions, such as China, Russia, Malaysia, Korea, among others.
Something curious about these cats is that, although they almost always prefer to retreat and avoid confrontations, the males often fight when their territory is threatened.
These battles are usually very bloody, where some are seriously injured. Leopards will spit on their opponent as a method of attack. The loser retreats, and from that moment on will not approach or fight for that area.
Leopards’ diet is strictly carnivorous. Among their favorite prey are ungulates, including antelopes, gazelles, impalas, zebras, and wildebeests, among others.
But it can also feed on reptiles, small monkeys, insects, etc. and is also an opportunist, often stealing the prey of cheetahs and hyenas.
They are nocturnal hunters, preferring to do so to prevent other animals from stealing their prey.
During the day, they usually sleep under some shade, on fresh vegetation, or high branches of trees.
The senses of sight and hearing are highly developed in this feline. These allow it to be very meticulous at the moment of hunting.
On the other hand, and although it may seem incredible, leopards favor the populations of herbivorous animals with the capture of prey, since by the frequent grazing the green areas would be reduced quickly.
