Amur Leopard - ENDANGERED! - Number 2 on the 2012 Ten Most Endangered Animals list, the Amur leopard lives only in the remote and snowy northern forests of eastern Russian’s Primorye region. Its former range included Korea and northern China, but the Amur leopard is now extinct in those countries. A 2007 census counted only 14-20 adult Amur leopards and 5-6 cubs. Man (of course) is solely responsible for the demise of this beautiful animal.
