The Snow Leopard mainly inhabits the high mountain regions of the Himalayas at elevations of 2,000 to 4,000 metres. It preys mostly on wild Sheep or Goats but this very agile and muscular cat can bring down a Yak which is close to three times its size. They give birth in the spring with the normal litter size being one to four kittens. Their unfortunate decline is due primarily to man's greed fo rthe rare woolly fur of this magnificent beast and the misproven, misguided belief of the medicinal value in their bones.
In this painting the family repose has been disrupted and the kittens now sit huddled safely by their mother's side. Their gaze and attention is on you. Are you the intruder?
