The Snow Leopard (Panthera uncia) is perfectly adapted to its habitat, Its extra large paws keep the cat from sinking into the snow-like a pair of natural snow shoes. The snow leopard’s large paws are natural snow shoes. Its round, short ears reduce heat loss, and the wide, short nasal cavity warms the air before it reaches the cat’s lungs. The cat has strong, short front limbs and longer hind limbs. They help launch the cat up to 30 feet (10 meters) in one leap! The snow leopard sports excellent camouflage thanks to its grey-white fur with its dark spots and rosettes.
