The Amur Leopard is found in a temperate forest habitat.Which has a wide variety of temperature and precipitation.The Amur leopard is well adapted to the cold mountain habitats of Russia's Far East. The Amur leopard also lives in the forests of the Sihote Alin Mountain Range where much of the year it encounters deep snow and harsh climates. During the 20th century, their range shrank dramatically. It is believed this is due to loss of their habitat, which is the temperate forests and to hunting. Today, the Amur Leopard is critically endangered with only 27 to 35 cats remaining in Southwest Primorye.

The Amur leopard is habitually nocturnal and solitary. Nimble-footed and strong, it carries and hides unfinished kills so that they are not taken by other predators. However, it has been reported that some males stay with females after mating, and may even help with rearing the young. Several males sometimes follow and fight over a female.
