Baby Amur Leopard Cub, World's Rarest Big Cat, Born at Yalta Zoo


Vets were hand-feeding the tiny Amur leopard baby at the Yalta Zoo, as the cub is still too young to open its eyes or even walk on four legs. Only 57 Amur leopards, which are listed as "Critically Endangered," are believed to live in the wild as of 2015. Despite the fact that Amur leopard numbers have roughly doubled since 2007, they are still the species of large felines most vulnerable to extinction.

  • First Glimpse of Adorable Newborn Tiger Triplets at Crimean Safari Park

    This trio of adorable newborn tiger cub triplets were filmed for the first time on Tuesday after being born at the Taigan Safari Park in Crimea. The Amur tiger cubs are mother Frosi’s first offspring, and she kept a protective eye on them as visitors were allowed to see them for the first time. According to her keeper, Frosi won’t even let the cubs’ father Felix come near them yet, and is feeding them herself – which is unusual for animals kept in captivity. Over the next two weeks, the cubs will begin to open their eyes and will start to get comfortable with seeing members of the public. Amur tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula, but were driven to the brink of extinction by hunting. Russia became the first country in the world to grant the tiger full protection. There were only about 400 Amur tigers in the wild when a census was taken in 2005, and researchers found that the population was declining. However, after a decade of intense conservation efforts, there are now over 550 adult Amur tigers in the wild and the numbers appear to be growing. The Amur tiger has been pushed back from the brink of extinction, for now, but careful conservation efforts must continue to protect this majestic species.
