What does a snow leopard use its tail for?
Its tail provides balance while moving about the craggy terrain of their mountain habitat, as well as for warmth and protection from the cold when wrapped around its body.
Why are snow leopards call “ghosts of the mountains?”
Because of their elusive nature and camouflaged fur, they are rarely seen.
Do snow leopards roar?
Unlike other large cats, snow leopards cannot roar. They can mew, growl, yowl and prusten. Prusten, also referred to as chuffing, is a non-threatening vocalization made by blowing through their nose while their mouth is closed.
