Adaptation

Snow leopards are coated in grey fur made to withstand coldness and snow. Their bodies are stocky, ears are small and rounded, paws are wide, and fur on all undersides. They have unusual large nasal cavities that aid breathing thin, cold air. They are known for being extremely secretive and well camouflaged. Snow leopard vocalizations include hisses, mews, growls, and wailing. They prefer attacking from above, and use their environment, broken terrain, high mountains, to capture their prey.
