Amur: The big cat fact file

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Amur leopard can run at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour.

It has been re­ported to leap more than 19 feet hor­i­zon­tally and up to 10 feet ver­ti­cally.

It car­ries and hides un­fin­ished kills so that they are not taken by other preda­tors.

The species live for 10-15 years, and up to 20 years in cap­tiv­ity.

The Amur leopard is also known as the far east leopard, the Manchurian leopard or the Korean leopard.

It has been re­ported that some males stay with fe­males af­ter mat­ing, and may even help rear the young.
