The snow leopard is a big cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The size of the global population was estimated at 4,080–6,590 adults, of which fewer than 2,500 individuals may reproduce in the wild. Snow leopards are slightly smaller than the other big cats but, like them, exhibit a range of sizes, generally weighing between 27 and 55 kg. Snow leopards have long, thick fur, and their base color varies from smoky gray to yellowish tan, with whitish underparts. Check 25 Beautiful Snow Leopard Picture.
