Animals Home > Mammals
The African Leopard is the most common Leopard and can be found in most areas of Africa. Some African Leopards can reach up to 200 pounds when fully grown.


Latin Name: Panthera pardus pardus  
Distribution: Africa  
The African Leopard likes to climb high up into trees to keep watch out for potential prey. Their long tails assist in their balance when they are in the trees. They eat a wide variety of foods all the way from small insects to large reptiles and mammals. Although they are not one of the larger wild cats they are incredibly strong and have been known to carry very large prey with them into a tree to eat it.
