Cat got your tongue, amongst other body parts?

Fun Facts

The Sri Lankan Leopard is the largest leopard in the world (mostly a polite way of saying ‘fat’), due to being the king of the jungle here! A true gentle-cat, leopards communicate with each other through distinctive calls; when a male wants to make another leopard aware of his presence, he’ll make a hoarse, raspy cough – a leopard version of our ‘ahem ahem’! They also growl when angry and, like your pet cat Snowball, purr when happy and relaxed.

 

Did you know?

A stealthy and graceful nocturnal hunter, the leopard stalks its prey, quickly pounces, and kills by suffocation. Small prey are killed with a bite on the back of the neck, and larger animals are held and strangled by the throat – probably the defining difference between Snowball the cat and Lucus the leopard!


Whereabouts

The best known locations to find leopards in their natural habitat are Yala National Park and Wilpattu National Park. In Sri Lanka's central hills, leopards have been recorded in forest patches, tea estates and plantations.

 

 

 

Wonderful stay at Mahoora Tented Safari Camp Yala

"From the moment we were picked up to the moment we sadly had to leave, Mahoora staff provided us with an experience we will never forget. We did 2 safaris, 1 afternoon and 1 the next morning. So lucky to witness leopard up close and be able to watch her hunt!!! 

 All staff at the camp are to be highly commended. We loved every minute of it and hope to be back for longer next time"
