The Black Leopard is the most common large black cat. They tend to inhabit China, Southeast Asia, and India in dense forest terrain. Despite their namesake, the leopard's fur is a combination of black, blue, gray, and purple. Since they are smaller and have a lighter build than black panthers, leopards are often used in zoos and as pets, and other dometication.
In search of Robin and Talia, Batman, Ra's al Ghul, and Ubu journeyed to Mount Merapi in Malaysia. Batman encountered a Black Leopard and rendered it unconscious. He began to suspect Ra's al Ghul was testing him when, Ubu allowed Batman to enter the mountain temple first, instead of his master.
