SAN ANTONIO -- As Halloween costumes begin to hit the shelves this fall, one 'naughty' outfit is turning heads -- parents' heads.

Walmart stores are now carrying a 'Naughty Leopard' costume for toddlers, according to Consumerist.com.

Although the name suggests a skimpy outfit, the garment bears little resemblance to a wild cat -- mostly black lace, lined with purple leopard-print trimming and ears.

The costume was spotted inside an unknown Walmart store. The retailer's website, however, does not offer the costume for sale -- at least not under the same name. Walmart.com lists the costume online as "Leopard Child Halloween Costume."

KVUE's sister station KENS 5 contacted the Walmart located at 5025 NW Loop 410 to see if the costume was being sold at San Antonio locations. A Walmart manager said the costume was not in-stock at the NW Loop 410 location.

According to Merriam-Webster, "naughty" is defined as either "vicious in moral character" or "lacking in taste."
