Sono un cucciolo raro di leopardo Amur!

ATTUALITA’ – E’ nato il 13 giugno nel “Serengeti Park” di Hodenhagen, in Germania, un rarissimo esemplare di leopardo Amur nero, che solo ora è stato presentato alla stampa. Lo stanno allevando a parte gli operatori del parco, dopo che i compagni di cucciolata lo hanno rigettato e allontanato.
I leopardi Amur sono criticamente in pericolo di estinzione; si contano solo 200 esemplari in cattività e solo una trentina selvaggi nel mondo. Ecco perchè l’esemplare nero è ancora più raro rispetto ai leopardi Amur maculati. Ne dà notizia ABC News.

A leopard without spots; but that’s not really why he’s so unusual. This extremely rare Amur leopard cub was born in mid-June at the “Serengeti Park” zoological garden at Hodenhagen, in Germany, though the news has been released to the press only now.
Zoo personnel are raising the young feline separately from other animals after his litter mates rejected him.
Amur leopards are in critical danger of extinction; there are around 200 in captivity and perhaps as few as thirty remaining in the wild. That’s what makes this little creature so extremely rare: other Amur leopards have spots. This one, with his unusual all-black coloration, does not. The source is ABC News.
