Graceful climbers, the leopard enjoys the freedom to live on that kill for days at a time without worrying about scavengers taking its kill.
Leopards are the second-largest wild cat on the African continent behind the African lion. Leopards are typically much smaller than lions in weight, with long bodies capable of climbing trees with ease. Leopards historically had a range that included North Africa, but for the most part, are found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
