The Leopards Habitat
  • These leopards may have territories of up to 700
    square miles. Their territory size is dependant
    on the availability of prey, with less prey
    meaning larger territories. They usually live
    above tree line between 7,500 and 18,000 feet. 
    Their habitat at these elevations consists of
    rocky, treeless slopes.

Leopards Biome
  • Temperate grasslands are composed of a rich mix
    of grasses and forbs and underlain by some of the
    world's most fertile soils. Since the development
    of the steel plow most have been converted to
    agricultural lands.
  • Semiarid, continental climates of the middle
    latitudes (Koeppen's BSk climate type) typically
    have between 10 and 20 inches of precipitation a
    year. Much of this falls as snow, serving as
    reservoir of moisture for the beginning of the
    growing season. Warm to hot summers are
    experienced, depending on latitude.
  • Perennial grasses and perennial forbs especially
    Compositae (or Asteraceae, depending on the
    taxonomic system used) and Leguminosae--the
    sunflower and pea families, respectively are
    dominant growthforms. Two or more strata of
    grasses (erect grasses and recumbent species) are
    recognized in the more humid expressions of the
  • Perennial grasses, with their growth buds at or
    just below the surface, are well-adapted to
    drought, fire, and cold. The tiller or narrow,
    upright stem reduces heat-gain in the hot
    summers the intricate root systems trap moisture
    and nutrients. Two basic types are
  • Turf- or sod-forming grasses, with rhizomes or
    underground stems from which new plants spring
    forth associated with the more humid grasslands
  • Bunch grasses, without rhizomes, that reproduce
    by seed associated with the drier parts of the

What do the leopards eat? What is their niche?
  • As you may not know Leopard's are the most
    dangerous of all the big cats. They like to
    eat... Wilde beast that they can chase down in
    the grassy plains. Strange creatures from the
    rainforest that you may not have heard of like
    Okapis and pangolin's. These are some other
    animals that you've probably heard of that are
    also a part of the Leopard's food chain wild
    pigs, deer and other small and tasty animals.
    Don't get to close to a Leopard yourself or you
    might get attacked or even worse killed.
  • The leopards are consumers because they do not
    make their own food, they hunt their food. The
    leopard is a predator because it eats Wild Pigs,
    Wilde Beast, Deer (etc.)The leopards are prey to
    lions, tigers and crocodiles.

Who are their enemies?

    spotted or black coloration. Leopards are known
    for their ability to go undetected nevertheless,
    lions, tigers, and crocodiles will hunt these
    cats. Occasionally packs of Indian wild dogs or
    African hunting dogs also attack leopards
