They are found in a variety of habitats including forest edges, wetlands and mountainous areas. It is particularly common in forest regions.
Female Blotched Leopards are slightly larger than males and have a wing-span of up to 5.5 cm.
They may be seen all year round but the population peaks at the end of summer into autumn.
