Amur leopard

Slawson Family Asian Big Cat Trek·Mammal

Amur leopards are brown to golden in color with hair that is an inch long in the summer and nearly three inches long in the winter. It has widely-spaced spots and is known for its long bushy tail. The Amur leopard is nocturnal and solitary by nature. It spends most of its day lounging on tree branches or hiding in thick brush or rocky outcrops. The Amur leopard can leap up to 20 feet across and ten feet up or down. This agility helps the leopard carry off and hide its prey so it cannot be taken by another predator.
