A leopard in Egypt

The leopard is a felid in the genus Panthera characterized by its yellow fur marked with rosettes.[1] Similar in appearance to the jaguar of the Americas,[2] it is native to Africa and Asia.

Historically, leopard furs were valued by humans in places such as Egypt for insulation against cold and windy weather, and as a status symbol. In 48 BCE, one leopard pelt was worth 50 drachmae.[1]
