Anatomy: These graceful, medium-sized cats grow to be about 3.5-5.5 feet (1-1.7 m) long; the tail is 2-3 feet (0.6-0.9 m) long. Adults weigh from 65 to 175 pounds (30-80 kg). Males are larger than females.
Some leopards have dark rosettes on a black background, making them appear black; these leopards are called black panthers. Cubs are gray when they are born.
Diet: These large cats are carnivores (meat-eaters). They hunt a wide range of mammals, reptiles, birds, crabs, and fish. They hunt mostly at night; they are nocturnal.
