Snow Leopards

Today we would like to introduce you to some more of our furry friends from Paradise Wildlife Park.
Mum and Dad visited the Park on Sunday and have been telling us stories about the big cats there ever since.
Today they were telling us about the Snow Leopards.
At first we thought maybe Oscar is really a Snow Leopard, as Mum told us that they are unable to continuously roar like a lion, but have a number of other vocalisations include hissing, chuffing, growling and wailing.
Oscar has a lot of different ways of talking as well, and he is always skidding around in the snow during the winter.

But then Mum told us that Snow Leopards have very furry feet and are very reclusive, hard to find animals. Not Oscar then. With his mouth you never have any problems finding that boy!
Then Mum said that Snow Leopards’ main prey is wild sheep, goats and small mammals. And we thought, is Henry a Snow Leopard?
After all, he brought home a rabbit the other day!

And Henry does have pretty fluffy feet, but, no, Henry can’t be a Snow Leopard. He was born in Ireland, and Mum says Snow Leopards come from the Tibetan region of China and the Himalayas.
Brrrr, it sounds really cold there – which means I, Archie, can’t be a Snow Leopard either as you wouldn’t catch me out in temperatures like they have there!
Mum also told us that the reason Snow Leopards have furry feet is to protect them in the snow and that their tail is nearly as long as their body length and they use this to wrap around their face, like a scarf to keep warm.
Now that sounds like a good idea.

  1. Oh wow! Snow leopards are beeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful! I have big fluffy feet but only because I have extra toes on my front claws…..I’d like to have a coat like a snow leopard though….white with black spots would be way cool!! As a cat, I’m proud to have so many gorgeous looking cousins that live in all parts of the world.

  2. Snow Leopards are stunning! Thanks for the little facts. I didn’t know. 🙂

  3. This is very interesting! Snow leopards are beautiful cats.
    My human and her husband also went to such a park before we all left France, the park is dedicated to felines of all sorts. I will have to have my human post something too.
    Have a purring day!

  4. One of my favourites. They are such stunning creatures.. Thanks for all the facts; it’s amazing what we don’t know! (Or should I say; ‘what I don’t know?) 🙂
