The leopard

A leopard is often called as the master of ambush. This is because of the fact that a leopard hunts it prey by surprise.Even though they are the smallest of the four big cats they have superior abilities than the other big cats. A leopard can drag a killed prey even twice its own size up to the tree tops. This ability helps them to keep their prey safe from other predators like hyenas and lions. They are elegantly built and have powerful claws which make this beautiful animal a magnificent predator
