Leopards in a group are called a “leap” or a “prowl.” Leopard families usually have a mother and two or three cubs. The cubs stay with their mother until they are 18 to 24 months old and have learned to hunt on their own.
Males usually stay with a female in estrus for about a week before going their separate ways. Leopards go out of their way to avoid each other, and they usually live alone on their home ranges. They don’t like it when people get in their way. Other than when they’re mating, nocturnal animals can fight when they meet by accident.
