Leopard Symbolism ... by Presley Love
"Leopard is one of the most fascinating animals, and an extraordinarily powerful totem. We are drawn to him, captivated by watching him and we seem to be hypnotized by his presence."
Totems, Symbols & Meanings of Leopard
Leopard is elusive and so very mysterious, and both male and female Leopards have held the court with kings and queens in myth, legend, art and literature from ancient times to this day, and for very good reason.
Alas... the symbolic meaning of Leopard has much to share with us about the magic and mystery of this gorgeous big cat. Leopard is often called Panther and also called Cougar in some areas as well, but Leopard is a beautiful species of large cats unto itself. The Leopard lives in Africa, and looks almost identical to his cousin the Jaguar who lives in South America, however the Leopard is an average of 100 pounds, much smaller than the Jaguar at 200 to 250 pounds. These distinctions give Leopard symbolism unique qualities.
