Found only in China and Russia, Amur Leopards are the rarest cats in the world with 84 living in the wild today. Deforestation and poaching explain why this beautiful cat faces extinction. Adapted to the cold, their tongues have rasps on them so they can scrape meat off the bones of the prey and their spotted coats, normally an inch long in summer, grow to 3 inches to protect them against the arctic cold. Their extra long tails help them balance, they can leap over 20 feet and run at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour.
Our gold, beige and black bracelet has a hint of yellow and seeks to capture the essence of these graceful and powerful cats.Leopards are, in many ways, the ultimate cats - they are 100 times larger than your domestic cats and a hundred times more powerful! Not a kitty you'd want in your living room! There are less than 15,000 Leopards of all types left in the world spread across several species. Their greatest threat is loss of habitat as agriculture expands into the highlands, mountains and jungles where they live - Deforestation! Leopards are solitary creatures and each one marks out its own wide territory. Our Leopard set begins with a remarkable species - the Amur leopard, a type of Snow Leopard. Enjoy wearing these wonderful creatures!
