Leopards are agile and stealthy predators. Although they are smaller than other members of the Panthera genus, they are able to take large prey due to their massive skulls that facilitate powerful jaw muscles.

Head and body length is usually between 90 and 165 cm. The tail reaches 60 to 110 cm long. Males are about 30% larger than females, weighing 30 to 91 kg compared to 23 to 60 kg for females.
