Leopard

Leopard

These agile predators are the smallest of the big cats. Official records show that four leopards are being kept as pets in London today. There have been reports of man-eating leopards out in India but generally in the wild they avoid people. They can reach speeds of up to 36mph and have an extraordinary ability to climb trees. As undomesticated animals, these would be rather a dicey choice as a pet.
