Snow leopards are pretty majestic creatures. Their white coats and gorgeous spot patterns make them look truly stunning in the wild. They have nimble frames and beautifully long tails that appear to have a mind of their own.
It’s hard not to see these creatures as poised, majestic animals, but can actually be quite silly when they want to be. After all, they’re just big cats at the end of the day.
When you’re not distracted by their big beautiful eyes (or ferocious teeth), you’re looking at their impressive tails. As I said earlier, a snow leopard’s tail is a pretty incredible thing. They can grow between 80 to 105 centimeters long – that’s nearly as big as they are!
Much like a domestic cat, the main function of a tail is to help the felines balance. But snow leopards don’t just use their tails for balance – they also make the perfect thing to ‘nom-nom’ on. Yes, it would appear that snow leopards love chewing their tails and having a good nibble… There goes their majestic visuals!
