Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard on Branch Three Qtr View

Snow leopards live in high mountain regions of central Asia, which are often hot in summer but intensely cold and snow-covered in winter.  The snow leopard can be recognised by its long tail and almost-white coat which is spotted with large black rosettes.  There are up to 6000 snow leopards in the wild across 12 countries, but its numbers are graduallly declining.  The snow leopard is becoming endangered due to a number of factors including hunting and habitat loss.
