Snow Leopard Description
  Large dark rosettes on a background of pale gray or creamy smoke-gray characterize this woolly cat. Like the Leopard it feeds on a wide range of prey.
Often active by day, especially in the early morning and late afternoon, the Snow Leopard dens in a cavern or crevice.
Hunted for its fur,it is also threatened by the scarcity of its natural prey, and the encroachment of livestock on pastures.
