Endangered natural habitats

The natural habitat of the snow leopard is changing and as a result, there is a reduced number of individuals. Lately, we found out the great news! According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the snow leopard is no longer endangered and it has changed the status to vulnerable. That means that this cat has gone from “very high risk” to “high risk” and there are between 4.000 and 7.000 snow leopards in the wild. You must admit that this news is certainly good!

Powerful and mysterious cat

Without a doubt, the snow leopard is one of the World’s most mysterious cats. These cats are so elusive and hard to find and their life is a great mystery. There are only a few filmed documentaries about their everyday life and habits because it’s very difficult to catch them on camera. That’s why it is often said that the snow leopard is a shy animal.

The whole package

Not only they are gorgeous, but they are also capable of living in extremely cold conditions. As you can notice, their coat is not in the color of the snow, it’s the color of the stones where they climb. It’s one more reason why it is so difficult to see them. Their powerful chest muscles help them to climb mountains with ease and a long tail helps them to balance. Their can jump extremely long. Those tremendous leapers are able to jump as far as 50 feet.

They don’t attack humans

There are a lot of interesting facts you probably didn’t know about them. For example, it is not very well-known that these wild animals haven’t been aggressive toward humans. The snow leopard will never attack humans, except if it feels in danger. It actually avoids people’s presence more than any other big cats. They would rather play with their cubs than put anyone in danger.
