There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

At the same time, because the Arabian lion is extinct, the leopard is the biggest Arabian cat, even the cheetah would doubtfully compete with the leopard for weight due to its skinny physique which is more for speed than power: http://www.catsg.org/cheetah/05_library/...Arabia.pdf

Levantine leopard vs South Arabian leopard, from the link above, Harrison and Bates: 
   

Check out the greenery of South Oman's Dhofar Mountains, which has Jabal Samhan Nature Reserve, one of a number of areas in the Arabian Peninsula that still has leopards (http://www.yemenileopard.org/files/cms/r...eopard.pdf): 




Ancient Yemeni or South Arabian relief of both a lion and leopard attacking prey, in the Walters Art Museum: https://art.thewalters.org/detail/76505
"On the left side of this relief, an Asiatic lion attacks a gazelle, while a rabbit tries to jump away from the gazelle's forelegs. On the right, a leopard jumps down from rocks onto the back of an ibex; a small rodent flees the hoofs of the ibex. Birds in the branches of acacia trees observe the two scenes. The frieze was broken in two during the civil war in Yemen in 1962, and the longer right section was discolored by fire. "

Though this video is on the Arabian lion, it also shows a leopard and cheetah after the first minute:
