Hello! My name's Sarah. I'm 19 years old and this is a big cat blog with a slight focus on cheetahs(because they're perfect). I'm currently attending school and majoring in Zoology. My dream is to move to Africa and photograph cheetahs. Hopefully I'll be able to help big cat conservation programs while I'm at it. <3 Feel free to message me. Meow! xoxo

Its common names are Amur leopard from Amur River or Far Eastern Leopard.

The coat is light cream (especially in winter) and has widely spaced rosettes with thick, black rings and darkened centres. The length of the coat varies between 2.5cm in summer and 7.5cm in winter.They have light pale blue eyes which seems to make them look more calm then most big cats.there habitat is mostly russia chinakore and china.
