Cheyenne Mountain Zoo welcomes rare Amur leopard

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — Cheyenne Mountain Zoo‏ has a new resident, a gorgeous and rare Amur leopard.

Amur leopards are critically endangered, according to World Wildlife Fund.

“Scientists estimate there are only around 60 left in the wild,” Cheyenne Mountain Zoo posted on Facebook.

The zoo said its new leopard, Anadyr, is nearly 2 years old.

He was sent to the zoo from England based on a breeding recommendation for the zoo’s female Amur leopard, Anya.

Visitors can find Anadyr in the Asian Highlands exhibit at the zoo.
