Marwar - - In Focus -

Male leop­ards are usu­ally 50 per cent larger than fe­male leop­ards.

Leop­ards can climb trees eas­ily and that too with heavy prey such as deer. This is to en­sure that other predators such as tigers are un­able to snatch their prey and also to stock food for later use.

Black pan­thers are in re­al­ity melanis­tic leop­ards.

Leop­ards com­mu­ni­cate through dis­tinc­tive calls.

They are mostly ac­tive at night and love to spend the day hid­den on tree­tops.
