Latin name : Panthera tigris altaica
THE RAREST OF THEM ALL!
- A little more than 80 surviving individuals can be found inside the most southerly border territory of Primorye, in Russia and in China’s bordering Jilin sector;
- About 200 individuals live inside zoo environments around the world;
- Their life span is set between 10 and 15 years in nature and up to 20 years in captivity;
- Although poaching constitutes a great threat to these animals, their preys are also becoming more and more scarce. Deforestation has also become a stress factor for the species besides forest fires that have increased in the areas where we find the Amur leopard.
