Amur leopards are amazing creatures. They are the world’s rarest cat. These leopards are native to the Primorye region of southeastern Russia and the Jilin Province of northeast China.
They, like many other leopards, eat a variety of prey, including roe deer, red deer, musk deer, sika deer, wild boar, hares, badgers, etc. The Amur leopard is important ecologically and economically. Conservation of its habitat benefits other species, including Amur tigers and prey species like deer. In addition, they keep their forest environments in balance.
