Here is a young male leopard, apparently recently well-fed, resting in a tree. Leopards spend much of their time in trees - in fact, they drag their prey into trees to eat them. Only a few dozen yards from this male, we saw his sister in another tree. The easiest way to spot a leopard in a tree is to look for the tell-tale vertical line drawn by its tail hanging down. As you can see, leopard spots are really rosettes.
