Instructions for a productive day out for the young leopard

Wilpattu National Park

Fun Facts

Wake up early and go for a brisk walk. This will help you to get the blood flowing to all parts of your body and also help to scope out the land for good breakfast options. Remember, nutrition is very important, it’s not all about gorging on deer, monkeys and wild boars! Get a good mix of food types in your breakfast; grab a few frogs as you slurp up your morning water, run with your mouth open and get some bugs into your system, stalk a land monitor and sink your teeth into its juicy meat and whilst you practice your jumps, grab a passing bird. A varied diet will make a leopard grow big and strong in no time!

Did you know?

Naps are very good for you and you can also have fun while you take one! Mess with the humans who love to gawk at us. Tease them as much as you can while you get in your essential late morning and afternoon beauty sleep. Just get up into the trees so that only your dangling tail is seen or lie down next to a log and just put up a paw for them to see. This drives them nuts!


The scrub is your friend, be one with it and practice your camoflauge routine as you walk about. A good place to try it out is the Mahoora campsite in Yala, the humans there are nice and won’t bother you even if you get it wrong.  Keep out of the hot sun and practice only in the early morning or evening. If you live up in the cool climes of the mountainous parks, feel free to practice anytime.
