Snow Leopards eat sheep, goats, and small mammals.
Population of the remaining Snow Leopards
There are less than 7,000 snow leopards left in the wild!

The Snow Leopard is endangered because since their prey is livestock, the shepards will kill them to protect the livestock (cows, sheep, etc.)
"Adult Snow Leopards Weigh 75 to 120 lbs." Snow Leopards climb up to 18,00 feet.They stalk on their prey and spring up on it. Females usually have litters of 1-3 cubs. Cubs remain with their mother for about 20 months. Snow Leopards are otherwise solitary, except when mating.
