That day, I lost my way in the rainforest. To the shock of my life, I saw a leopard. There was nothing I could do. The first instinct was to hide myself behind some bushes. But alas! The beast spotted me, glaring deep into my eyes.
My jelly legs couldn’t move at all as the leopard advanced towards me.
Thank goodness, the leopard turned away when it neared me!!! I was safe… so here I am, still alive and kicking, and blogging my time away!
It’s a shame that I always thought a leopard is a cheetah. Now I know they are different. The most obvious difference between the two is their fur. The spots on a cheetah’s fur are solid black. The spots on a leopard has rosette pattern.
