Sri Lankan leopard,
Unlike most forests and national parks in India, the leopard is an apex predator here. Hence, leopards in Yala have an air of confidence about them, without having to worry about the presence of tigers. Yala has one of the highest leopard densities in the world - I was able to sight leopards in 3 out of my 6 safaris there. The park is divided into 5 blocks - Block 1 is the main area for visits but Block 3 is also quite popular.
