Kiya is a female African Leopard .She was born on October 23, 2000. She was given to Jim Moore, because her owner knew she would get the best home possible! He has raised her since she was one week old. Kiya is the second Leopard Jim has raised, but they are a handful and not recommended as pets! Leopards are the most intelligent of all the cats, their brain size has been compared to Dolphins. They are also the most widely distributed. A Leopard will spend the majority of its time in trees, sleeping there, raising its cubs there, even taking its prey into the trees. Leopards have had to adapt this way of life because most of their habitats overlap the two largest cats; Lions and Tigers.
