Snow Leopards

The Himalayan Cat

Snow leopards are fabulous creatures that are only found in zoos and the high, snowy,

mountains of China, The Himalayas. Snow leopards have a big territory. Many people

hunt snow leopards for their beautiful fur. Snow leopards are gray or white with black

C- shaped spots; with a long, fluffy tail and fur, with a white or a yellowish belly. Snow leopards are related to the rare, clouded leopard and the common leopard of the rain forest. The snow leopard's carnivorous diet is made of mountain goats and other small prey. These animals are adapted to climbing rocks and keeping warm with long, insulating fur and natural snow boots. Snow leopards are the best of the big cats!
