F a c t s

 

 

 

* It is estimated that there are about 2500 North Chinese Leopards leftin the wild  

 

* There are only about 100 North Chinese Leopard left in Captivity

 

* The North Chinese Leopard is the most endangered leopard in the wild

 

* Nearly all captive N. Chinese Leopards are in Europe.

 

               * N. Chinese Leopards mate in January-February and the cubs are usually born in litters of 2-3.

 

               * The cubs open their eyes after approximately 10 days and begin to follow their mother on hunts at about 3 months.

 

               * Since North Chinese Leopards are rarely seen in the wild the population is unknown, only estimates are made. Because of this they are not considered "endangered enough" for action in preserving their captive line.

 

 

 

 

 

A p p e a r a n c e

 

 

 

 

 

               * When young, the fur on the North Chinese Leopard is longer and thicker then that of an adult.

 

               * Their fur is a red - brown - orange color and is covered in black spots, like a regular leopard.
