Rare Amur leopard on display at Germany zoo
HODENHAGEN, Germany (KABC) -- An extremely rare Amur black leopard cub is on display at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, Germany.
It weighs nearly 9 pounds and is 24 inches long.
The cub was born on June 13 together with a twin sister.
Park keepers said the cub was being hand reared after being rejected by his spotted siblings.
Amur leopards are critically endangered with just over 200 in captivity worldwide and only around 30 left in the wild. Black Amur leopards are even rarer.
