Amur Leopard Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora

Species: Panthera pardus Male Amur leopards weigh 32–48 kg (71–106 lb), with exceptionally large males up to 60–75 kg (132–165 lb). Females are smaller than the males at 25–43 kg (55–95 lb) The Amur Leopard is a Carnivore but when it needs to it will eat certain plants The Amur Leopards are only able to produce 2- 4 cubs every breeding season. This species went endangered because of four major reasons,

1.) Poaching - Most of the poaching happenes on the Border bewteen China and Russia. Most of the leopards and killed by either their prey being caught to much or of themselves being caught.

2.)Deforestation - The homes of the leopards are slowly being logged, causing the Amur Leopard to have to move and find a new home.

3.) Imbreeding - Loss of genetic diversity in the small and isolated Amur leopard population

4.)Development projects - Southwest Primorye is located close to the Russian borders with China and North Korea, making it an attractive area for infrastructure projects such as new railways, gas and oil pipelines, and ports As of 2010 there are only 30 - 40 Amur leopards left in the wild, the remaining 315 are in captivity.
