001. ‘GIRAFFE STEAK’. Leopard. Kafunta Lodge Area, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
The leopard’s skin colour varies between individuals from pale yellowish to dark golden with dark spots grouped in rosettes. The pattern of rosettes is unique in each individual. Leopards are the smallest of the big cat group but are the most adaptable. They hunt, kill and feed quickly and quietly to avoid detection. Males are much bigger than females and can bring down a small giraffe.
