1 Leopards are excellent hunters. There's no doubt about it! Leopards have well-toned bodies like athletes. Their limbs are sturdy and powerful. Leopards can run, climb, and jump with both grace and ease.
2 Leopards stalk their prey. Their tawny, rosette-patterned fur coats blend in quite well with their surroundings. At the moment that its target least expects it, the leopard emerges from its hiding place and bolts toward the victim. If the intended prey reacts fast enough, it still has a chance to survive. Otherwise, it will die in the blink of eye.
3 As far as food choices go, the leopard is not picky at all. And it is not afraid of taking on an animal much bigger than itself. Leopards may devour frogs, lizards, and snakes. Or it can fill its stomach with impalas and antelopes. Once it manages to take down a sizable animal, it likes to drag it up in a tree and store it there. Over the course of the next few days, it will slowly consume the kill at its own leisure. With the kill being put up so high above the ground, it does not have to worry about hyenas and lions -- both of which are notorious for barging in uninvited and stealing other animals' food.
