“A world without leopards, well, who would want to live in it?”
Leopard, the Beauty with the Spots
Did you know what the spots on a leopard are called?
Rosettes, because these distinctive black spots resemble roses.
If you have read my last post, Adventures in the Wild, you’ll know I just returned for a 12 day jaunt in the forests of Central India. I was there to learn more about wildlife, as part of a curriculum organised by my company, Pugdundee Safaris. And also to quench my thirst for the wild, alleviate my soul, and soak in the beauty of the wilderness.
The morning I left Satpura, the participants of my course stumbled upon this regal cat, on a jeep safari, in the buffer zone. And as luck would have it, they were studying the Mammals module.
Did you notice how this beauty with the spots, fixated his gaze at them? Have you ever spotted a leopard in the wild? Did it scare you or you just sat transfixed in wonder?
I for one, love watching wildlife in their natural habitat.
