This is not our #Hima
, but a wild #snowleopard
❣️ I wanted to post a video how this snowleopard was hunting down the rocks...so amazing! And IG just doesn't allows me to post it 😡 sorry. So at least here are some facts about these beautiful creatures 💞
👉🏼The snow leopard’s habitat extends through twelve countries: Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
China is one of the most influential countries for our conservation efforts, as it contains as much as 60% of all snow leopard habitat areas.
In the Himalayas, snow leopards are usually found between 3,000 and 5,400 meters above sea level. In Mongolia and Russia, these cats are found at lower altitudes of 1000 meters.
At the snow leopard’s typical elevation, the climate is cold and dry, and only grasses and small shrubs can grow on the steep mountain slopes.
Snow leopards prefer the broken terrain of cliffs, rocky outcrops, and ravines. This type of habitat provides good cover and clear views to help them find prey, and sneak up on it.
