Beijing: Clear pictures and video of endangered Amur leopard have been captured by infrared cameras in northeast China's Heilongjiang province.
Experts with the provincial forestry department said the infrared cameras set in a forest in Dongning county in the
China-Russia border have captured images of the same leopard eight times, state run Xinhua news agency reported.
The leopard's presence in the county suggests that the range of the animal's activity may be extending inland from
the border areas between China and Russia, experts said.
One of the world's most endangered species, the Amur leopard was included on a list of animals under top grade
national protection in 1983. There are believed to be about 40 wild Amur leopards left, mostly in far eastern Russia, China's northeast and the northern part of the Korean Peninsula.
