Native to the mountainous regions of central and South Asia, the snow leopard is a relatively small member of the Panthera genus. With a stocky body and a thick coat, snow leopards are uniquely adapted to live in very cold, harsh environments.
Scientific Name: Panthera uncia
Characteristics: Hand painted and crafted by professional artists, this figurine makes a wonderful gift for a biology enthusiast! Snow leopards are incredibly shy and elusive, so consider yourself lucky for observing one up close!
Size and Color: Standing 1.75 inches tall and 5.5 inches long, this figurine is a touch shorter and longer than a soda can resting on its side. Like their name suggests, snow leopards have grayish snow colored fur accented with black rosettes.
