This beautiful creature is now being added to the endangered species, as hunters relentlessly pursue the leopard for its skins. Human invasion into the Leopard’s domain, has had an impact on the Leopards population, The population once spanned across Africa and Asia, sadly now you can find this big cat only in Sub Sahara terrain of Africa.

    No it is not my pet, although it is such a beautiful creature.
    Shame they are now on the endangered species list, because some people need to drape the skin around their ugly bodies.
