Are leopard’s always solitary? | Leopard Trails

Leopard’s have been known to be solitary creatures, however in Yala national park we have had many sightings that seem to defy this logic. What are the explanations for these sightings? Mating couples, mother with cubs, mother with cubs and cubs from a previous litter, mother with cubs and the father, leopards from different territories feeding on a carcass together, father and son mating with one female, the list goes on! These incredibly adaptable creatures are no doubt still evolving and adapting to the specific habitat they live in. We feel privileged to have seen up to 6 leopards together in Yala national park and have heard reports of 7 together! Check out Keith’s video which touches on some of these reasons, along with some video footage of more than one leopard together.
