The ecology and behaviour of a protected area Sri Lankan leopard(Panthera pardus kotiya) population
"Of all (leopard) kills, 13.7% were secured in trees. Wild boars were detected scavenging from 38.8% of 49 monitored carcasses. Other scavengers included ruddy mongoose (Herpesthes smithii; 36.8%), Large-billed Crow (Corvus macrorhnchos; 22.5%), land monitor (8.2%), mugger crocodile (Crocodylus palustris; 6.1%), sloth bear (Melursus ursinus; 4.1%) and Hawk Eagle (Spizeatus cirrhatus; 2%). A small but widespread population of jackals (Canis aureus) inhabits the study area, but these were never observed to directly scavenge from a leopard kill."
