Baby teeth

This fourteen-week-old baby Amur leopard already has a fearsome set of fangs. As a member of the world's rarest big cat species, she is bound to become the star attraction at Marwell Zoo in Hampshire. But with the wild population said to be as little as 35, her real significance is to conservationists. Only half a dozen Amurs left in their native habitat on Siberia's Pacific coast near the Korean border are thought to be females. Source: the Daily Mail
