Snow Leopards

Our Snow Leopards are very good at camouflage, they blend in with the rocks. They like to watch the birds swoop over their habitat.

Fun Facts:
This acrobatic cat can leap 20–50 feet when chasing speedy prey. A snow leopard uses its long, bushy tail to stay balanced while scaling steep mountainsides. It also uses it as a sort of scarf to stay warm during naptime. Padded foot soles insulate the snow leopard’s paws like snow boots. Snow leopards do not roar, but do make other sounds including “chuffling,” a friendly greeting.
