Leopards, do they have spots?

By Greg on June 4, 2014

The distinctive markings on leopards act as camouflage, protecting these large cats from predators. These markings are often called spots, but they actually are rosettes. They also appear on so-called black leopards, but the pattern cannot always be seen on the animal’s dark fur unless it is in a well-lit area.


Leopards’ beautiful coats make them targets for poachers and hunters, causing the animal’s extinction in some countries.
