1

Black Jaguar

Mainly found in lowlands, tropical areas and densest part of the vegetation.

 Black jaguar is not a separate species, but a rare color variant. They are powerful hunters and play a vital role within their ecosystem. Like all jaguars, these carnivores are masters of ambush, and it is thought that their dark color adaptation might aid these cats in their hunting. Unfortunately, like all jaguars, this color variation of the species is just as susceptible to threats like habitat loss and are endangered

Amur Leopard

 Only found in the Primorye region of Russia.

Similar to other leopards, the Amur leopard can run at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour. This incredible animal has been reported to leap more than 19 feet horizontally and up to 10 feet vertically. The Amur leopard is also known as the Far East leopard, the Manchurian leopard or the Korean leopard. Only about 14 to 20 adults and 5 to 6 cubs left in the wild

Sumatran Rhinoceros

Found in islands of Sumatra and Borneo.

The total population of this particular rhino is listed at less than 275. Like the other rhino brothers, Sumatrans have been heavily targeted by poachers for their horns. They are the smallest of the living rhinoceroses and the only Asian rhino with two horns.

All White Humpback Whale

Migaloo is Australia’s most well-known humpback whale

Humpback whales roam the open seas, with regular migrations from feeding grounds at high latitudes to calving grounds in lower latitudes. Named for the distinct hump behind the dorsal fin, this agile and acrobatic whale often leaps out of the water and slaps its tail and flippers on the water’s surface.

Western Lowland Gorilla

Found in forest and lowland swamps in central Africa in Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo.

Western Lowland Gorillas can be distinguished from other gorilla subspecies by their slightly smaller size, their brown-grey coats and auburn chests. They were once the most numerous and widespread gorilla species in the world, but poaching and disease (specifically the Ebola virus) have brought their total population down by more than 60 percent in the last 20 to 25 years.
