You can find Snow Leopards in the Asian high mountains of the 12 countries of Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Snow Leopards have many adaptations that allow them to survive in the harsh environment of the high mountains of Asia. These adaptations include long and dense fur, long hind legs, and a long tail.

The Snow Leopard’s fur color varies from white to a dirty white to grey. It can also be a tan or a cream color and even have a golden hue. The fur is speckled in spots also called rosettes which are dark charcoal grey to black in color.

As an opportunist, the Snow Leopard has a widely variable diet which consists of prey animals as small as a marmot or a woolly hare to larger prey like that of bharal also called Blue Sheep, Siberian ibex, argali, markhor, or the Himalayan tahr.

The Snow Leopard does not have the laryngeal structure that allows the other big cats to roar. So, no, it cannot roar.

They can make a variety of vocalizations, including: Purring, Hissing, Growling, Moaning, and Yowling. However, they cannot roar.

The Snow Leopard is the smallest of all the big cats that are found in the genus Panthera; these include the Tiger, Lion, Jaguar, Forest Leopard, and the Snow Leopard.

The Snow Leopard species faces many threats to its survival, including habitat loss or disruption, poaching, reduction in wild prey, disease, climate change, military conflict, and by-catch snaring or poisoning.
