The leopard (Panthera pardus) is an elusive, solitary species that is found over a broad geographic range and has also adapted to human-dominated landscapes. They inhabit a variety of habitats and their diet constitutes a wide range of prey species. They are also one of the most conflict-prone species due to these reasons.

This report provides the first estimates of abundance and density of leopards in Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple Tiger Reserve.
