Offhand I can think of two members who breed leopards, @Tom and @Kapidolo Farms, both excellent breeders that start babies the right way. I'll link our vendor review thread...you might find more in there.

First, buy directly from a breeder who starts them correctly. Most don't.

I only have the South African leopards. And I won't have any hatchling to sell until winter. its a 7+ month process to hatch them and I got my first clutches in May.

For regular leopards I know that @Gijoux has some for sale right now and you can't do any better than hers. My friend in GA might still have a few left @wccmog10 and I agree with Karen that @Kapidolo Farms would also be an excellent place to get a baby leopard. You can also stock up on an assortment of excellent food items from them.

I agree with @Tom that @Gijoux has great leopards, she shared a booth with me in Anaheim. I have just one right now and IMO still too small to ship.

I have no direct experience with @wccmog10 .
