Adapted to thrive in one of the harshest habitats in India, amidst the high altitudes of the Himalayas, Snow Leopards are beyond doubt one of the most stunning wild cats in the world! Their well-camouflaged fur allows them to stalk their prey and conceal themselves behind rocks and boulders. They have short front limbs and long hind limbs, which enables them to jump at least 30ft high and their versatile tail, helps them keep warm and also maintain balance while walking around the treacherous cliffs and edges.
