A leopard's tail can almost or nearly be as long as it's body. Not necessarily always a fact that it is as long as it's body.

1. The colour is a matt reddish-brown.
2. The tuft of hear is an indication of the "mood". It is normally in the upright position and is pulled down flat when the animal is nervous or danger is apparent.
3. The wide black ring around the eyes is characteristic in identification of this dainty of the arid areas.
4. The nose doesn't have the usual external snout opening like with other animals, giving it a trunk-like appearance.
5. The hard, bony hooves protect the animal's feet on the hard arid ground, allowing it to move around in these inhospitable areas.
6. The ram is about 15-20% smaller than the ewe.


Nice Q, B. :thumbs_up:

1. False. Grizzled-gray to grey-brown above, flank and legs tan. Paler in arid regions.
2. False. The tuft of hair is usually flat, but can be raised in a crest when alarmed or in courtship.
3. False. It has a white ring around the eyes.
4. True. This characterises them.
5. True. Generally true, although, the back part of the hoof has a hard, rubbery part that is in contact with the ground, which would make this question slightly false!
6. False. The ram and ewe are about the same size, with the ewe, on average, weighing a little more.

Have to work for this one:

1. False. Grizzled-gray to grey-brown above, flank and legs tan. Paler in arid regions.
2. False. The tuft of hair is usually flat, but can be raised in a crest when alarmed or in courtship.
3. False. It has a white ring around the eyes.
4. True. This characterises them.
5. False. The back part of the hoof has a hard, rubbery part that is in contact with the ground, which acts as a shock-absorber in inhospitable, rocky environments.
6. False. The ram and ewe are about the same size, with the ewe, on average, weighing a little more.
