Amur Leopard (CollectA - Wild Life)
« on: May 05, 2015, 11:57:59 AM »
Walk-around of the CollectA Wild Life 88708 Amur Leopard or Far Eastern Leopard, Panthera pardus orientalis (Schlegel, 1857), new for 2015. Snout-vent length is approx. 92 mm and shoulder height would be approx. 54 mm (if the figure wasn't crouching, due to its pose the figure is no taller than 46.5 mm) so the scale is between approx. 1:12 and 1:14 (P. p. orientalis is a particularly small subspecies). The human figure (South American Father by Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo") is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale. This is one of the rarest Leopard subspecies, one census of 2000 counted less than 20 specimens remaining in the wild. It seems the population has recovered a little and very recently WWF reported 57 individuals from Russia and an additional eight to twelve from adjacent China. Still, by going through such a population bottleneck the genetic variability in a given taxon will be severely depleted and it's no surprise that a 2002 study showed that the Amur Leopard has the lowest level of genetic variation of any Leopard subspecies. It is listed "Critically Endangered" by IUCN.
