Copy of Snow Leopard
Transcript of Copy of Snow Leopard
What makes the snow leopard so great is because of its features.
The snow leopard's fur pattern is magnificent and great to blend in with its natural surroundings to sneak up on its prey.
Also with its legs it can reach its prey up to 30 feet.
Habitat and Range
The leopard's are found at rugged mountains in Central Asia.
Their range spans from Afghanistan to Kazakhstan and Russia.
The snow leopard tries to get away from it's enemies such as the wolf, the tiger, and the cheetah.
The snow leopard gets away from the cheetah by camouflage and by leaping big leaps because the snow leopard is super athletic.
Very little is known about the behavior of snow leopards in the wild.
They are normally solitary hunters, to stalk prey.
Hunting occurs primarily during early morning and late evening hours.
The most important prey species for snow leopards are the blue sheep, a large wild goat, and the Argali, another wild sheep species.
Mating season for wild snow leopards is between January and mid-March.
During this time, a male and a female will travel together for a few days .
The female will be pregnant for about 93 - 110 days.
Locomotion( movement )
Snow Leopards move on all four of their legs.
They can jump up to 30 feet high and as far as 50 feet and 9 meters .
Species Survival Status
Individual Snow cats leave scent marks and scratch marks along their paths to avoid contact with other snow cats.
They use their hind paws to make scuff marks on the ground
The snow leopard's status is endangered.
Snow leopards are found in 12 countries.
Including China, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, and Mongolia but their population is dropping.
There are up to 6,000 snow leopards in the wild, but numbers are dropping.
Hunting and habitat loss are some of the reasons that it is endangered.
