Snow Leopard
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Snow leopards are big cats. They are endangered animals. This means they are in danger of dying out. They live in the mountains of central Asia. Their mountain homes are very cold. Some of the countries where they live are Mongolia, China, and India.
 
2     Snow leopards are not often seen by people. That makes it hard to know exactly how many of them are left. About 600 of them live in zoos around the world. It is thought that there are less than 6,000 of them still living in the wild, but there may be only half that many.
 
3     Adult snow leopards weigh between 60 and 120 pounds. They are about two feet tall at the shoulder. From head to tail, they are from six to seven and a half feet long. They have long tails that help them balance. When resting, they wrap their tails around their bodies like a scarf to keep warm in the freezing temperatures.
