Leopard

3475-035w

Leopard can weigh up to 200 lbs. The overall size of the leopard depends very much on the subspecies and location, with the largest animals growing to a length of nearly 5 feet with an additional tail length of some 3 feet - generally the male is between 20-40% larger than the female. The leopard is like the jaguar in coat pattern, with dark spots or rosettes. Although the size of the rosettes varies over geographical region, leopard rosettes remain empty of markings while jaguars generally have one to four dark spots inside the open spots.
