There are fragmented populations in India, Indochina, Malaysia, and China.Regardless of the loss of selection and constant decreases in population, the cat continues tobe a “Least Concern” species; its numbers are higher than that of the other Panthera species,all of which deal with more acute conservation concerns.The leopard has reasonably short legs and a long body, with a huge skull.
