The ground color can be pale straw, leather gray to chestnut to deep ochre, and white belly. The shoulders, upper legs, back, flanks, and hips have dark spots arranged in rosettes, which generally surround an area of a higher shade than the rest of the ground color.
The head, throat, and chest are marked with small black spots, while the belly has spots that are also black but elongated. The body length varies from 91 cm to 1.91 m, tail length is 58 m to 1.1 m, and weight is 37 to 90 kg in males and 28 to 60 kg in females.
Leopards that inhabit desert regions are the smallest, while the largest are those of the jungle. There are also melanistic leopards that are more commonly known as black panthers, especially in dense and humid forests.
The leopard can adapt to almost any habitat that provides sufficient food and shelter. One specimen is known to have been found at an altitude of 5638 m on Mount Kilimanjaro.
It is usually nocturnal, and during the day, it rests on a tree branch, among dense vegetation or on rocks. It can travel up to 25 km in one night, but if disturbed, it can be up to 75 km.
It usually moves in a slow, silent gait but may briefly run at approximately 60 km/hr speeds. It has been seen to leap up to 6 meters horizontally and 3 meters vertically.
Hunting consists mainly of stalking and cautiously getting as close as possible to the prey. Large animals are held by the throat and killed by strangulation.
Smaller prey is killed by a bite on the back of the neck. Their feeding spectrum is highly variable, but it seems that some specimens may specialize in catching certain animals.
Even small carnivores such as jackals, civets, and lion cubs can be caught. The leopard has such strength that it can climb a tree carrying a carcass larger than itself. Food is often stored in trees to be eaten later.
