INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue or yellow eyes.

I love her eyes.. it always seems to me as if snow leopards gaze into ones soul. :)
Say, would you mind if I use this shot as a drawing reference (non-commercial and with proper credit of course)? I plan to draw one of those fantastic cats, but I haven't decided from what photo yet.. :noes:

He looks very regal.
He is saying "Is that food? That's my food, bring it to me."
