This is a female snow leopard having fun in the snow.

Perhaps the most mythical, magical and elusive of all the big cats the snow leopard is a cat of breathtaking beauty. There are believed to be around 2500 remaining in the wild in the mountain ranges of central Asia. This is a huge geographical area covering China, India, Pakistan, Russia and Kasakhstan . To this day very little is known about them, literally a den site with cubs was found for the first time only a few short weeks ago and up until around 10 years ago there was no film footage of a snow leopard in the wild.
However, they are still hunted for their magnificent fur and there body parts are also still sought after for the Chinese medicine trade.
