Leopards have a number of defense mechanisms for dealing with predators, which I'll describe in more detail below.

How do leopards defend themselves?
A leopard protects itself by using its natural attributes.

These include:

  • An ability to climb up trees - leopards are known as the best climbers in the animal kingdom. Sitting up in a tree, they are able to survey the land and keep an eye out for danger.
Attacking something sitting above you is also very difficult, so an assailant would have to climb towards a leopard - making it vulnerable to counter-attack.

  • Camouflage- is another technique used by leopards. Their spotted fur acts to disguise them in the foliage of their natural habitat.
Camouflage also helps leopards hunt their prey without being noticed.

  • Sharp teeth and claws - can prove fatal to anything considering attacking a leopard. Leopards are also notoriously powerful creatures.
Based on the above information, you may be wondering what kind of creature would be crazy enough to attack a leopard.

Well the answer is that, apart from the odd tiger or lion, man is the biggest predator of leopards!

A Leopard protects itself by staying in a pack. But, sometimes Leopards try to avoid each other. They think of each other as danger.

The Leopard is very protective when it comes to their babies.
