Year 2 - Snow leopard Class
Snow leopards are descendants of the wild cat and panther families. It is native to the rugged and snowy highlands of Central Asia. Snow leopards are powerful predators that can kill animals three times their weight. These animals are known to be endangered. Humans have pushed ever further with their livestock into the snow leopard's habitat. Overgrazing damages the fragile mountain grasslands, leaving less food for the wild sheep and goats that are the snow leopard's main prey. Poachers are also hunting them for their beautiful fur. It is estimated that there are 4,500 to 7,500 snow leopards living in the mountains of central Asia. It is believed that 60% of the entire population of snow leopards live in China.
