Question No. 9: What are leopards best known for?




Leopards are well known for their beautiful golden fur, which is spotted with dark rosettes, as well as for being excellent tree climbers. They have sleek and powerful bodies that are perfectly built for hunting.


Did you know? The leopard’s tail is almost as long as its entire body. This helps it to maintain balance during high speed chases and to change direction suddenly. It also helps in maintaining balance when climbing a tree.
