The leopard (Panthera pardus) is a member of the Felidae family and the smallest of the four “big cats,” the other three being the tiger, lion and jaguar. Leopards are nocturnal animals, meaning they are active at night. During the day, they rest in thick brush or in trees. Leopards are solitary, preferring to live alone.
