The Snow Leopards
Amareah livingston B-2 Habitat Snow leopards prefer to have such a habitat with steep cliff areas, rocky outcrops and ravines. This type of habitat provides good cover and clear views to help them sneak up on their prey. China contains as much as 60% of snow leopard habitat. Snow leopards are usually found between 3,000 and 5,400 meters above sea level. Population Snow leopards have a population of 3,500 to 7,000 in the wild and 600 to 700 left in zoos. Hunting The snow leopard is active mostly at dawn. They are able to kill animals 3 times larger than thier own sizes. They are also known to jump as far as 14 meters. Snow leopards kill large animals twice monthly. Global climate change Snow leopards are facing a distinct threat from global warming. Their typical habitat range is between where the tree line stops and the snow line begins on the mountains. As global warming warms the earth, snow lines are receding, which means that snow leopards must move further up the mountain slopes as well. As snow leopards get to higher elevations, the vegetation becomes more scarce, which means that the herbivores that they prey on are in limited supply as well, and the leopards are having trouble finding enough food.

Where located. overall location Main location Snow Leopard Eating habits Population Decline Snow Leopards enjoy eating wild sheep and goats. Even though carnivores they are considered tractful eaters only because they eat smaller animals like rodents, hares, and birds. They can also eat considerable amounts of grass and twigs as well.

Snow leopards are beautiful animals with colorful fur and are being killed for their fur. Most times after being killed they are being skinned for their fur and the fur is being sold. Now would you really want to kill somthing as adorable as this. If not you can help by adopting a snow leopard at a wildlife adoption center. If adopting is not for you, you can join the snow leopard conservancy. There are many different ways to help. The main reason you should help is because they help the environment control the populations of mice, rats, and birds. The reason they are having decline is because of poachers. Hunters target the rare leopard for its pelt and bones, which are used in traditional Chinese medicines. They were 1st annouced endangered in 1986.

At about 2 months, cubs eat their first solid food. By 3 months they are following their mother around, learning how to hunt and other snow leopard behavior.Cubs become independent of their mothers at 18-22 months of age. Female snow leopards will be ready to have their own cubs by the age of 2 or 3.In captivity, snow leopards have been known to live for as long as 21 years. Their lives in the wild, being much harder, are likely somewhat shorter. They are not sure exactly how long the snow leopards life spand.
