    An Amur leopard has been born but the mother didn't take care for it. It is now raised by a Shepard dog.

    I heard that first days mother nursed cub well. But later cub has been taken from his mother because of fear that the mother can damage cub by reason of stress caused by unsuitable conditions (noise and so on).

    Exactly one reason why housing conditions should be reviewed and exhibit updated / renovated to suit the needs of the female and male leopard.

    Amur leopard cubs 1.0 and 0.1 were born to Khan x Felitzia in early May.
