Snow Leopard

The Snow Leopard has been recorded at levels of up to 6000 metres (above sea level) in snowfields and on glaciers. In winter they will follow their migrating prey to lower altitudes, where they are still perfectly camouflaged against the snow covered rocky terrain. The Snow Leopard has evolved perfectly to survive in the Himalayas. Their broad paws act as snow-shoes and assist when trudging through the bitterly cold snow. Their powerful legs, combined with a tail almost as long as their body, enables the Snow Leopard to leap nearly 6 metres in a single bound.
