Zhang Jie and Zhongni, two six-week-old North Chinese Leopards are seen during a name giving ceremony at Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg, Germany. The North Chinese Leopard is an endangered species. No one knows for sure how many North Chinese Leopards there are in the wild, which makes it rather difficult conserving them. There are only 100 in captivity, and new blood lines are needed in order to continue a healthy captive population of the cats.
