*WARNING: Our lawyers have advised us to point out that the leopard is not, strictly speaking, a vegetable. Leopards are huge animals with spots and pointy teeth, and are generally considered to be more dangerous than the average vegetable. For instance, not many people have ever claimed to have been bitten by a tomato, whereas leopards are doing this sort of thing all the time. Caution is therefore advised.
