- "Rook Island is a dangerous place, and if the pirates don’t get you, the leopards will. These large felines are opportunistic hunters that will eat anything they can catch. Like construction workers at an all-you-can-eat buffet, or investment bankers."

Leopards are predatory felines found in Far Cry 3.
They are cruel and ferocious. Leopards will attack the first person or animal they see. For those who go exploring on the island Rocks, they must confront the leopards. However, they are very vulnerable to detection in the woods.
- Far Cry 3 features a unique variation of the leopard with a black coat rather than the usual spotted coat. This is a melanistic mutation that occurs in a range of large cats including leopards and jaguars which causes an individual to be born with a black coat instead of the normal coat colour.
- Sometimes you can find a leopard near the Amanaki outpost.
- Due to the location of the Rook Islands, it is likely that the leopard subspecies that inhabit the Islands are Javan Leopards, probably smuggled over by Pirates, although they could be Indian, Indochinese or Sri Lankan Leopards too since Javan leopards are critically endangered and the other subspecies are more available.
