fortunately, they are not :) they are far more endangered leopards :no:
Amur leopards are the rarest :(

I did a report on Snow Leopards for middle school. It got a very good grade.^^

great, but still: from all the leopards, snow leopards are definitely not the rarest :D

That's just what the book I used for my report said. Maybe the Snow Leopards improved sence the book came out.

:iconwoxys:
woxys Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
well... for example:

Amur leopards: 32 animals (!!!) in the wild :)
Persian leopard: 1 3000 animals in the wild :)
Javan leopard: 250 animals in the wild...

Snow leopards: 6 000 animals in the wild :)

oh, a mistake: only 1 300 Persian leopards in the wild, not 13 000, sorry :)
