A Female Amur Leopard Arrives In Seoul Grand Park From The United Kingdom

The arrival is in response to the European Endangered Species Conservation Program’s (EEP) recommendation to breed and translocate Amur leopards in 2022 and a project to commemorate the 140th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and the United Kingdom last year.

The Amur leopard is listed as a CITES Critically Endangered species and is designated as a Class 1 endangered wildlife species by the Ministry of Environment.

The body length is about 1.5 to 2 meters, and the tail length is about 67 to 110 centimeters. The head is large and rounded, and the neck is short. Its fur is yellow or yellowish-red with black spots scattered on its body, four legs, and tail.

The pattern on the back and sides of the body has a central patch of light yellowish-brown fur, giving it a lobed appearance.

The new Amur leopard was born in 2014 and is named Arina. Seoul National University currently has two male Amur leopards, Leo and Rod.
