Diet

Snow leopards are carnivores feeding mainly on wild sheep and goats. They will hunt alone covering a large territory of up to 100 km2. (39 sq. miles).

behaviour

Breeding

They are solitary except during the breeding season. After a pregnancy of around 3 ½ months, 1 to 5 cubs are born in a well-concealed den. The female rears them alone.

Conservation

Snow leopards are threatened in the wild by habitat loss and hunting for trade. As their prey availability is also decreasing, snow leopards can come into conflict with humans as they sometimes hunt livestock.
