Sri Lankan Leopard – Panthera pardus kotiya

Published December 20, 2016 in Field Notes


This is Sri Lankan Leopard from a recent vacation trip.

I only got to take this picture when he was watching behind the bushes. I shot and focused manually to get the eye in focus.

Even though I couldn’t take more pictures, I got to see it well: the fine spotting and intense orange coat were striking and noticeably different from other subspecies of leopards in Asia and Africa. A truly spectacular animal.
