The Leopard tolerates variable climatic conditions and occurs in a wide range of habitats. Found from coastal areas to elevations of 2000 m above sea level in forests, deserts, semi-deserts, bushveld, mountains, woodlands and rocky areas. They are not dependant on surface water.
I like this fact:-
They pluck fur off the carcass before starting to feed on the softer parts of the body.
And here is something for those non-believers:- :lol:
They are agile climbers and when there is competition from other predators the carcass will be cached out of reach in the fork of a large tree.

Freda - I was surprised just how well they do climb and how comfortable they are in trees. They are also very strong are they not?

They are probably the most powerful of the predators from a power to weight ratio.
Amazing creatures.

Amazing creatures to watch - even climbing bathroom walls with prey many times their size!! My heart aches for them when they have put so much effort into moving a dead moth or such and then drop it when they are nearly there......

GP - I never got to see an antlion but I did see an ant being 'caught' as it crossed the 'den'. Made quite a noise and gave a good fight - that was what attracted my attention in the first place.
