This sexy beast is pretty much the puuuurfect man. If I could date him, I dream that we'd walk hand in paw through the forest and he'd show me his favorite paths and migration routes. When I got hungry, he'd hunt our dinner (and possibly me) and we'd enjoy a feast of uncooked venison under the stars before retiring to his huge mansion to mate. We'd eat leftovers in his bed of rose petals, twigs, and grass, then I'd cuddle up to his real-fur chest and fall asleep watching Cougar Town.
A loyal man and an excellent father, he and I would co-parent little Leo (or Leonette) and the two would watch baseball together (always rooting for the Cubs, of course) and he'd accompany Leo on camping trips with the Cub Scouts.
With his athletic prowess, race horse speed, and Superman-esque jumping abilities, he could be an olympic athlete or an American Ninja Warrior, but he prefers to use his incredible talents and well-honed skills to kill wild hogs and provide for his family. His slim, toned physique and androgynous features ensures he would own the catwalk, but he'd rather maintain a low profile in the Russian mountains.
He's always being scouted by camo-coated fashionista's who'd literally kill for his phenomenal outfit (have you ever seen a man look so good in polka dots?), and unfortunately he's lost most of his family to these villains. Maybe that's why a good man is so hard to find...
With only 30 Amur Leopards remaining, the species is critically endangered. These hip cats can run 37 mph and can jump 19 ft. horizontally and 10 ft. vertically. They are loyal mates who help raise their cubs, and their home ranges are approximately 39 square miles (that's like Downton Abbey, no big deal). They hunt deer and wild hogs, saving the excess food for later, and they travel along the same paths and same areas for years. Beauty has it's price and unfortunately the main threat to these stunners are poachers who want the leopards for their fur.
