Snow leopards have wooly gray fur with black spots. They can weigh up to 160 pounds. Their big furry paws keep them from sinking in the snow. Their long tails help them keep their balance when running through the Himalayan mountains.
In Real Life
Snow leopards live alone for most of their lives. They mostly hunt ibex, blue sheep, and yaks. They're an endangered species because poachers are destroying their habitat and killing the beautiful cats for their coat.
In The Wild Thornberrys TV Series
Eliza and Donnie see a snow leopard cub trapped in a cage. Eliza frees it, and they take it back to its sibling, mother, and father. The mother tells Eliza that people keep coming to their mountain and they must keep moving higher and higher. Usually, the leopards hide, or the "Yeti" protects them.
In Gobi Yourself
When Eliza and Arioka ride into an oasis on Bactrian camels, they start to head back, only to encounter a snow leopard.
