Going on Safari, Tanzania’s Big Five: The Leopard (4)

Leopards are shy and nocturnal, quite modest for a cat that can climb, swim and live in a wider range of habitats than most other wild cats. Leopards use trees as observation platforms and for protection, so when you are on safari remember to look up to see this solitary, beautiful cat.

Man has succeeded in getting this magnificent cat on the IUCN's "near threatened" list by reducing the leopards' habitat, depleting its prey and hunting it.

Thx Steve!
