Snow Leopard (Scientific Name: Uncia uncia) (2/10)

Just looking at these majestic creatures, our hearts should bleed at the fact there that are less than 2,500 mature breeding males of snow leopards left in the whole world. They are typically found at the elevation of 3000 to 4000 miles, and in Pakistan they can be found in Karakoram mountain ranges, Gilgit-Baltistan, Himalayas, and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. The Pakistani population of snow leopards has come down to as low as 200 to 400 approximately. Their habitats are being endangered by poaching, pollution, and hunting and by the continued expansion of houses for human beings.
