The Snow Leopard or Ounce is a member of the cat family, Felidae. Leopards occupy a wide range of habitats and have the most extensive distribution of any of the wild species of cat. Occuring throughout much of Africa and Asia, they measure between five and eight feet in length. They are agile climbers and will often stalk prey in the trees, or wait on a branch for some animal to pass underneath. The coats of the various leopards differ according to their variety. The ground colour of the Snow Leopard's coat is light cream or grey with large black spots forming irregular rosettes.
