Cat got your tongue, amongst other body parts?

Yala National Park

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!


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.
