Snow leopard survived jumping 200 feet cliff

The snow leopard (Panthera uncia), also known as the ounce, is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. There are an estimated 4,080-6,590 snow leopards in the wild, but it is difficult for scientists to know for sure. They are listed as ‘Vulnerable’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

They’re well adapted to their cold environment. Their fur keeps them well insulated in cold weather – it can be 5cm long on their back and sides and almost 12cm long on their belly. Snow leopards tails are 80-105cm long, they’re thought to aid balance and they also wrap them around themselves for added warmth.

This clip will show you how a snow leopard survived after jumping 200 feet, which is inconceivable.
