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

Walmart stores carryied 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 ."

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

The Daily Mail reports Walmart has since pulled the costume from store shelves.
