It is not as big as a lion but can weigh in at 60 to 100 pounds with the occasional 170 pound male. these animals range about 75 to 130 centimeters, and the tail adds 80 to 100 centimeter.

Snow leopards numbers are dropping mainly because of what they eat. They eat domesticated sheep so farmers kill them to save there live stock. They are also running out of space. But worst of all are the poachers. Snow leopards are very pretty and that is a problem. People want there furs.
