DownloadThis gorgeous big cat playing peekaboo is an Amur or Manchurian Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) behind some leaves. These unique leopards are incredibly endangered with only an estimated 30-45 cats alive in the wild, but conservation efforts like those at the Denver Zoo are trying to save the species. His light green eyes are typical of the AmurLeopards, who typically have light yellow to almost whitish long coats as well as long legs to carry them through the snow drifts of Eastern Russia.
