Snow Leopards

Himalayan Highlands

Meaning "abode of snow" in Sanskrit, the Himalaya mountains are home to an array of animals with special adaptations to deal with the wintry climate. At Stone Zoo's Himalayan Highlands, snow leopards, equipped with long tails for keeping balanced in high drifts of snow, live alongside their natural prey, Markhor goats. Rounding out these hearty species is a yak, used in the Himalayas as beasts of burden that transport goods across mountain passes for farmers and traders and in support of climbing and trekking expeditions.
