Snow Leopard (Panthera Uncia or Ounce)
The snow leopard is found in the higher altitude beyond the snow line. Very rarely news regarding spotting snow leopard emerges but no concrete evidence till date have been unearthed to support the claims of their sighting. Not much is known of this elusive creature and presently studies are underway to unravel its mystery. Snow leopards feed on mountain goats and similar herbivores that inhabit the higher altitudes. The pelt of this animal is held in high esteem by those who care to use them. They are almost on their way to extinction.
