Leopards tend to favor rocky landscapes with dense bush and riverine forests, but they have also shown to be highly adaptable to many places in both warm and cold climates. African leopards are one of the two big cats that inhabit the continent of Africa, along with the lion. The cheetah is also sometimes included in the big cat family due to their size, but it is technically not a big cat as it cannot roar. Being a member of the big cat family, the African leopard can roar. Besides roaring it also uses growls, spits and purrs to communicate with each other. The only two predators of African leopards in the wild are lions and hyenas.
