A pumapard is a hybrid of a female puma and a male leopard or a female leopard and a male puma. Both of these pairings have been known to have babies. In general, these hybrids have a short stature and are smaller than their parents.



Pumapards tend to be smaller than their parents. The ones who were reported grew to only half the size of their parents. They have a Puma-like long body and they also have short legs. Their coat is described as yellowish brown or greyish with brown imitations of forms of roses.
