The leopard, Panthera pardus, is a member of the Felidae family and the smallest of the four “big cats” in the genus Panthera, the other three being the tiger, lion, and jaguar. The leopard was once distributed across eastern and southern Asia and Africa, from Siberia to South Africa, but its range of distribution has decreased radically because of hunting and loss of habitat. It is now chiefly found in sub-Saharan Africa; there are also fragmented populations in the Indian subcontinent, Sri Lanka, Indochina, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China.

I only painted a few wild animals before, but bought a new paintbrush yesterday and also new watercolour paper and know that Afrikaans is my moedertaal has a challenge 20 $ LEOPARDS IN AFRICA | 20 $ LUIPERDS IN AFRIKA running at the moment….so I decided “Why not?”
