Rarely seen by human eyes, the elusive snow leopard prowls the rocky cliffs of its mountain home in search of prey. Readers will discover why this fascinating cat is so hard to find, how it survives in the freezing temperatures of its habitat, and what it has in common with other large cats. They will also find out why snow leopards move up and down mountains as the seasons change and how they protect their cubs from harm.
