Leopards (Panthera pardus) are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List because they are threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and numbers are declining globally.

Often hunted illegally their body parts are smuggled in the wildlife trade for medicinal practices and decoration.

This is one of my favorite Leopard portraits which I took many years ago.

Enjoy your weekend!
