Leopards at Ussuri Falls

Amur Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis)
Distribution: Russian far east and possibly north east China
Status: Critically Endangered

New Leopard circleThe enclosure is home to our two leopards (one male and one female). As leopards are solitary in the wild, our leopards have their own comfortable areas of the enclosure, allowing keepers to mix the pair when our female comes into oestrus with the hopes of successfull breeding.

Amur leopards are one of the most critically endangered big cats in the world, with an estimated 35 individuals left in the Wild. They are hunted for their thick coats and for their bones for the Traditional Chinese Medicine trade.

See if you can spot the leopards in their enclosures, or learn more about them at the daily leopard encounter during your next visit!   Leopards full new 18
