There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Formerly classified with the scientific name Panthera pardus panthera, before being subsumed to Panthera pardus nimr (the nominate subspecies in Africa) in possibly 1996, aside from the controversy of whether or not African leopards should really be treated as a single subspecies (see this thread), the Atlas or Barbary leopard is an either extinct or endangered population of leopards from the Maghreb (Northwest Africa): https://conbio.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/d...10041115.xhttp://www.biosoil.ru/files/00001386.pdfhttps://repository.si.edu/bitstream/hand...=y#page=73https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1...ode=imdn21

Dated to the 21st of May, 2005, Schizoform said regarding this photograph of a leopardess (sic): "very sad. this is the last surviving Barbary leopard. and you know what? she's old and fat, and lives in a chain-link cage. it's like being sent to a retirement home, except people pay five bucks to take photos through the fence." https://www.flickr.com/photos/schizoform/41647289

The information about the size of this leopard population, presented by @chui_, is very important and should be here too. Here is the link, post 173: https://wildfact.com/forum/topic-on-the-...us?page=12
