Amur Leopard Fact Sheet

  • Latin Name

    Panthera pardus orientalis
  • Class

    Mammals
  • Order

    Carnivora
  • Range

    Straddling the Amur River in southeast Russia, North Korea and China.

  • Habitat

    Mountainous woodlands

  • Niche

    Opportunistic hunters, Amur leopards prey upon boar, deer, badgers and smaller mammals like hare. The big cats carry prey into trees to eat and store for later consumption.

  • Life History

    Extremely territorial and solitary except when breeding, Amur leopards mark their territory with urine.

  • Special Adaptations

    Long legs and a thick coat keep the amur leopard warm when prowling through snow. Wide, powerful paws are excellent weapons for felling prey. Amur leopards can leap 20 feet into the air.
