Cool Cats

Snow leopard

Found in the rugged mountains of Central Asia, snow leopards are perfectly adapted to the cold, barren landscape of their high-altitude home. A beautiful smoky-gray coat gives snow leopards protection from the extreme cold while also providing excellent camouflage against the rocks and snow. A long, thick tail not only aids in keeping their balance on the rocky terrain but also acts as a scarf when wrapped around their body while resting. Their round, short ears reduce heat loss and a well-developed nasal cavity helps in breathing the cold thin air. Large paws with a thick cushion of hair around the paw pads act like snow shoes, enabling them to walk quickly over the snow without sinking.
