Leopards are a member of the large cat family, living largely in parts of Africa as well as some parts of southern and eastern Asia. Leopards have been illegally hunted for decades for their body parts and are then smuggled in the wildlife trade for decoration and medicinal practices. Leopards live in the jungles of Africa and Asia and actually like to spend a lot of time in the trees.
Male leopards stand between 24 and 28 inches and females are almost equal to the males measuring at 22-25 inches. Like most species, the males weigh more than the females; males weighing between 82-198 pounds and females weighing 62-132 pounds.
