The smallest of all leopards, the Arabian Leopard has been critically endangered since 2006 when it was confirmed that fewer than 200 of the animals were in existence. While it closely resembles the African Leopard, scientists used DNA from a captive leopard found in Israel to determine that the Arabian Leopard is, indeed, its own distinct subspecies. What a beautiful, majestic creature that, hopefully, can bounce back from the brink of extinction.
