The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis), also known as the Manchurian leopard, is a wild feline predator that originally lived in the Russian Far East, Korea, and China.
This leopard species is very particular because it also lives in mountainous areas as well as in temperate forests. Unfortunately, there are only from 30 to 35 individuals remaining in the wild, and this makes it one of the rarest felids in the world.
More information on this beautiful animal at http://www.amur-leopard.org/ in the Green Links.
On Monday, April 5th 2010, the Amur leopard Darla, which is kept in captivity in the Tallin Zoo in Estonia, gave birth to two cubs. The first was born at 7:51 am, the second 9:55 am.
There is a camera that monitors the mother and the two cubs constantly. Why don’t you click the Green Links on the right and have a look at them? They’re so cute 🙂
The Tallin zoo has also other cameras placed in different places in the zoo (also in the Green links).
