Mother and Son | by Johannes Wapelhorst. The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. It is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because as of 2003, the size of the global population was estimated at 4,080-6,590 adults, of which fewer than 2,500 individuals may reproduce in the wild. They inhabit alpine and subalpine zones at elevations from 3,000 to 4,500 m (9,800 to 14,800 ft).
Look at that amazing coat. Jaguars tend to have larger, closed rosettes with spots in the middle; the leopard has plain open or "broken" rosettes with no central spot in the middle so this is a Jaguar.
These large, beautifully-marked antelopes are now found only in one remote area of Kenya. Their deep chestnut coat is adorned with bright white stripes that help to provide camouflage from predators such as man, leopards, spotted hyenas and lions.
