Hold a Baby Leopard

COMPLETED BY 2

LISTED 20

Leopards are big cats known for their golden, spotted bodies and graceful, yet ferocious hunting techniques. They are often thought of as an African animal, but leopards live all over the world. Though their reach is vast, their numbers are declining.

Leopards do not have a defined birthing season and litters can arrive at any point during the year, although mating is more likely to occur during the months of January and February, meaning leopard litters typically arrive between April and May. The gestation period for leopards is between 90 and 112 days. Leopard litters typically contain two cubs, although litters can number up to six cubs.

Held a baby cheetah when I was visiting a special sanctuary with my nephew who is a nature preservation ranger in Africa. Met both parents as well. I was quite an experience to be able to be so close to these magnificent animals. It made me sad as well. We should not be able to see them other than running free in their natural habitat I want them wild and free. Not there for me to hold what I should not. Nevertheless I was and am grateful for this rare opportunity.
