Leopards of the Night

You chose answer 4.

Leopards hunt only in the daytime.

In fact, with rare exceptions, it's just the opposite: For maximum advantage over their prey (most of which can't see as well in darkness as the leopard) and maximum protection from their predators (primarily humans), leopards hunt almost exclusively at night—preferably dark, moonless nights.

Keep trying!.
