Some people believe that the bones and whiskers of leopards can heal sick people. Many leopards are killed each year for their fur and body parts and this is one reason why the leopard is an endangered animal. While they were previously found in the wild in a number of areas around the world, their habitat is largely restricted to sub-Saharan Africa with small numbers also found in India, Pakistan, Malaysia, China and Indochina.
Leopards are mostly endangered because people hunt them for their beautiful coats. They may also get shot if they wander to close into a human village. Another reason is because the forests in which they live are being torn down. You can help save them by donating to a foundation that helps animals like leopards and other cats.
