Leopards weight approximately 59kg and are the smallest of the big cats. (They are grouped together with Lions, Tigers and Jaguars). They are incredibly adaptable, being ablel to swim, run at high speed, climb and they will eat anything from an inscect or reptile through to a grazing animal. They are also happy to scavange as well as hunt. They are superbly camouflaged with their memorable rosettes and can creep within a few metres before pouncing. They are solitary cats and this fact, alongside their most excellent camouflage makes them very difficult to see and film. They hunt at night and hide in caves and trees during the day when it is just too hot for them. Although leopards are the smallest of the big cats they are extremely muscular (the males are often 50% bigger than the females) and they can quite easily bring down a small giraffe.
