Snow Leopard Animal Resembling the leopard (see p.206) in its wide range of prey, this woolly furred big cat prefers crags and ridges in steppe, rocky shrub, and open conifer forest to altitudes of 5,000m (16,500ft).It can hunt yak or asses, but most prey are smaller – wild sheep, goats, marmots, pikas, hares, and birds.Breeding habits resemble similar-sized felids, although 4-5 cubs may be reared.
