The Sri Lankan Panthera is one of nine recognised subspecies of leopard. This apex predator of the island of Sri Lanka (Pardus kotiya) is generally bigger than its close relatives on other continents.
The Sri Lankan leopard has historically been found across a wide range of habitats on the island nation including arid scrub jungle, rainforest, upper highland forest, and dry evergreen monsoon forest.There are about 1,000 leopards across Sri Lanka and they are a keystone species in ecological parlance of the country. According to research, the Yala National Park contains the highest density of Panthera pardus kotiya (a subspecies of leopard native to Sri Lanka) in the world. Wilpattu Park and many other enclosed forest reserves are believed to contain a smaller population of leopards as well.
