Snow Leopards can’t roar like other big cats but they have the most majestic tails ever to compensate. Their tails are almost as long as they are – somewhere between 80 to 105 centimeters long!

They are mainly used to help them balance, however, they can also serve as a perfect object to OM NOM NOM on!

While Snow Leopards wrap their tails around their noses to protect themselves from cold in their natural habitat (they are Snow Leopards after all), it hardly explains why they’d do that when in captivity. Maybe it’s simply genetic, or maybe they just can’t resist the fluff? Just look at those tails. SO. MUCH. FLUFF.

The snow leopard is distributed from the west of Lake Baikal through southern Siberia, in the Kunlun Mountains, in the Russian Altai mountains, Sayan and Tannu-Ola Mountains, in the Tian Shan, across Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan to the Hindu Kush in eastern Afghanistan, Karakoram in northern Pakistan, in the Pamir Mountains, and in the high altitudes of the Himalayas in India, Nepal, and Bhutan, and the Tibetan Plateau.

In Mongolia, it is found in the Mongolian and Gobi Altai Mountains and the Khangai Mountains. In Tibet, it is found up to the Altyn-Tagh in the north.
