The Snow Leopard is a subspecies of leopard that lives in the snow. It differs from normal leopards because it has a white coat, so as to provide camouflage from predators in the snow, yet still has an array of spots on its coat. This would mean it has very dumb predators, especially since it is a big cat and can pretty much tear them to shreds.
True to their name, snow leopards inhabit places with snow. They are mostly found in the Himalayas, but for those too afraid of heights for life in the mountains, their preferred habitat is the Arctic Circle. They are twice as abundant in Antarctica due to the high quantity of penguins too slow and clumsy to outrun these powerful creatures. Snow leopards travel in packs to Canada and the northern United States during winter, where they regularly stalk children playing in the snow. They are so well camouflaged that you never see them coming.
The snow leopard follows a mostly carnivorous diet consisting of mountain goats, elk, bison, moose and Norwegian Short-Tailed Yak Bears. On rare occasions, they will hunt the elusive sea sponge, which requires much power to bring down as it is powerfully built with a set of large horns for self-defence purposes.
edit Relationship with other predators
Snow leopards often compete with Polar bears for food and shelter. Sometimes a lost snow leopard would make its way into a polar bear den and use the cubs as pillows on which to rest its stinky feet, fleeing before the mother returns from hunting. In the Himalayas, the snow leopard is a favourite prey of the yeti, which - like its relatives the gorilla and chimpanzee - are intelligent enough to use tools. Yet they have difficulty seeing snow leopards against the snow in spite of their spots. The yeti itself is provided good camouflage to the point where scientists have yet to discover these mysterious white apes.
edit In popular culture.
Snow leopards haven't really had much of an impact in popular culture, with a few exceptions. The most notable case being the bad guy from Kung Fu Panda. He tried to steal a piece of paper thinking it would give him super powers, only to be vanquished by a big fat panda through the power of the Wuxi Finger Hold.
Another example would be an animated movie known as Frosty the Snow Leopard, in which a sorcerer puts a magic spell on a hat that is later found by a gang of cat smugglers. They would later put the hat on a cat, prompting it to transform into a snow leopard and eat them alive. It didn't do well in the box office and was critically panned for ripping off a much more popular and beloved movie about a snowman. No, not Frozen, the other one.
