Leopards in Sri Lanka
The Leopards in Sri Lanka, Panthera pardus kotiya, have evolved into a relatively large leopard subspecies. It might be due to the fact that it is the country’s apex predator. Although data is insufficient, large males have been suggested to weigh nearly 100 kg. Leopards, like in other areas, hunt alone, with the exception of females with young. Male ranges frequently overlap the smaller territories of many females, as well as portions of neighboring male areas. They are more active and prefer to hunt at night, but they are equally active throughout the dawn, dusk, and daytime hours. Because of the lack of conflict and the large prey base, they rarely haul their kills into trees.
