“Hot and cold place, humid and arid place; I went to many locations but every places in the park are pleasant. Although, my favorite place is on top of the tree. Isn't this the best place? Eh? You're not good at climbing tree? Once I told you how to do it, come! Don't be so shy!”
—Leopard (EX)'s introduction
Leopard is a kind of felid Friend.
Leopard has amber-coloured neck-length hair fading to off-white at the bottom, with brown spots on the tips of her ears and the hair covering her forehead. Her eyes are a similar, albeit more yellow amber. She wears a white shirt under a fawn sweatervest, with a leopard-patterned tie. This leopard-skin pattern, as one would probably expect, makes up a large part of her attire; her long gloves, pleated skirt, thigh-highs, boots and tail all sport this pattern.
Her EX design has shorter hair with two white pigtails, omits the vest and replaces the tie with a red bow. Her boots also have black laces instead of the original's light brown bow.
In Real Life
Home to a wide range of habitats across Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, the Leopard is one of the larger "big five" cats. The Leopard has a similar build to the Jaguar, but smaller and lighter. It's fur is characterized by rosettes, which act as camouflage while it hunts. The rosettes are similar to those of the Jaguar, but are smaller and more closely packed. The Leopard is known for its strength, which it uses to drag prey and carcasses into trees. It is able to run up to 58 kph, and its long tail helps improve its agility and balance.
The Leopard is an opportunistic animal, and will eat most of what it comes across. This includes wild pigs, antelopes, deer, porcupines, and other medium sized animals. Leopards take advantage of their acute hearing and sight for hunting. Larger sized prey can be dragged several hundred meters in order for the Leopard to hide it in a tree. Using their strength, Leopards can even haul animals larger themselves, such as giraffes, into trees. Often, Leopards must compete with other larger cats, such as Tigers, Lions, and Cheetahs, as well as Hyenas.
The Leopard has also adapted to a wide variety of habitats, which range from savanna and rainforests, to temperate forests in the Russian Far East. Leopards tend to avoid deserts and areas which experience lengthy snow.
