Snow Leopard

Panthera uncia

Also known as the ounce, the snow leopard is classed as a ‘big cat’ but has some ‘small cat’ characteristics; it does not roar and feeds in a crouched position.



Size: Head-Body Length - 1 - 1.3m, Tail length - 80 - 100cm
Weight: 25 - 75kg



Snow leopards live in the high mountains of central Asia and the Himalayas, in coniferous forest scrub.



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).



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.



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.
