Leopards love trees, they like resting in them, looking out over their territory but more importantly they like to haul a kill up onto a tree. This latter reason is one of the more interesting. By being able to pull a kill that nearly twice their body weight up a tree the Leopard can then enjoy its meal in peace without having to fight off Lions or Hyenas.
