Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg

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.

Amazing.  I want this as an avatar, lol.
But at that size it would be very hard to make out any message you put on the image about your copyright, and still have the image.

Beautiful shot :D I really love snow leopards, and I'm amazed by the way they hunt in the wild when they live in steep mountainsides :wow: It's like most other big cats hunt, just vertically :XD:
