Species: Sri Lankan Leopard (Sri Lankaanse panter)

Latin name: Panthera Pardus Kotiya

Originates from Sri Lanka.

Current status: Endangered

 Did you know:  

…The Sri Lankan Leopard was only first described in 1956, by the Sri Lankan zoologist Deraniyagala.

…Its Latin addition “kotiya” is a Sinhala name, but has been often wrongly translated as “Tiger” due to incorrect information, mistaking Leopards for “diviya”, the Sinhala term for small wild cats; since then, “kotiya” has been used for Tigers, and “diviya” for Leopards.

Kids always try to imitate their parents. Some just do it cuter than others.
