Description of Leopard

´╗┐Male leopards vary in length fromfive to eight feet, including a twenty-eight to thirty-seven inch tail. They stand eighteen to thirty-two inches high at the shoulder and weigh from fifty-five to two hundred pounds, depending on subspecies and geographic area. The largest leopards tend to inhabit mountainous terrain and colder regions. On average, females are 40 percent smaller than males. Leopard coats are short and sleek in the tropics and densely furred in colder areas. Their base color varies from yellow cream in desert areas, to golden yellow in grasslands, becoming deep gold in mountains and forests. All leopards are spotted, with black spots arranged in rosettes along the back and sides. Unlike jaguars, leopard rosettes do not have a spot in the center. Leopards in dark, moist tropical forests of Asia are often melanistic and are called black panthers; dark coats may be advantageous in areas of dim light. The name leopard is also given to two other species: the snow leopard (Panthera uncia), displaying cream-colored fur and grayish rosettes, that inhabits mountainous Central Asia, and the clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) of Southeast Asia, carrying grayish fur with cloudlike blotches on its sides. Both are endangered by overhunting for their beautiful fur.
