Arabian Leopard


This book is a celebration of a magnificent creature and its distinct features that are the result of thousands of years of evolution, making it perfectly suited to the deserts and mountains of Arabia. Imagery of the Arabian leopard as a symbol of strength, freedom and fearlessness has been found in ancient rock art, mosaics and paintings over the centuries, cementing its position as a revered and respected animal in Saudi Arabia and the world. In an attempt to raise critical awareness and turn the tide on the looming extinction of this beautiful animal, this essay by wildlife conservationist Andrew Spalton outlines the epic evolutionary journey of this Leopard subspecies from Africa to Arabia over the course of half a million years.
