INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

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.

fortunately, they are not :) they are far more endangered leopards :no:
Amur leopards are the rarest :(

I did a report on Snow Leopards for middle school. It got a very good grade.^^

great, but still: from all the leopards, snow leopards are definitely not the rarest :D

That's just what the book I used for my report said. Maybe the Snow Leopards improved sence the book came out.

:iconwoxys:
woxys Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
well... for example:

Amur leopards: 32 animals (!!!) in the wild :)
Persian leopard: 1 3000 animals in the wild :)
Javan leopard: 250 animals in the wild...

Snow leopards: 6 000 animals in the wild :)

oh, a mistake: only 1 300 Persian leopards in the wild, not 13 000, sorry :)
