Amur leopard is one of the most endangered wildlife species in the world. In 2017, the estimated population of the wild cat was just 60. It rose to 84 as of 2019, but it is still critically endangered. A recent picture of the animal in a dry forest is going viral. The photo has the Amur leopard getting camouflaged in the shades of nature and thoroughly blending in. This may be one of the toughest camouflage challenges. Maybe it’s also a metaphor to show it will be impossible to spot the animal after a few years as it is severely endangered. Can You Spot a Snow Leopard in This Pic?

Amur leopard has been listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. In 2007, only 19-27 leopards were estimated to have survived on southeastern Russia and northeast area of China. The number gradually came up to 84 in 2019, but the animal is still inching towards extinction. The latest viral camouflage image of the Amur leopard blending in with trees and twigs, is making people lose their minds. Some have even said this is exactly what will happen in a few years; we will struggle to spot the Amur leopard. Photo of White Ballerina Shoes Creates Optical Illusion, Drives Internet Crazy!
