Leopards of the World

August 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment



I have taken photos of leopards in three different countries:-

Sri Lankan Leopard (Panthera pardus kotiya)

The Sri Lankan leopard has been classified as endangered by the IUCN and is a leopard subspecies that is native to this country. My Sri Lankan Leopard photos were taken at Yala National Park which is located in the south eastern region of Sri Lanka; and Wilpattu National Park, which lies on the northwest coast and spans the border between North Central Province and North Western Province of Sri Lanka.

Indian Leopard (Panthera pardusfusca)

The Indian leopard is one of five big cats that make their home in India. Like all leopards, the Indian leopard is covered with dark spots, which are called rosettes because they look like a rose. I have only seen and photographed the Indian Leopard at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve.

African Leopard (Panthera pardus pardus)
Leopards can be found in various places around the world. They live in Sub-Saharan Africa, North east Africa, Asia, India and China.  Leopards are solitary animals and spend most of their time alone. The only time I saw and photographed an African leopard was on safari at Lake Nakuru in Kenya, where a leopardess was walking with her two cubs following a little distance behind her.
