Interesting Facts about Irbis

Snow leopards, often referred to as “ghosts of the mountains,” possess several adaptations for their high-altitude lives, including large nasal cavities for warming cold air and wide, fur-covered feet that act as natural snowshoes. Remarkably agile, they can leap up to 50 feet in pursuit of prey. Despite their fierce appearance, Irbis are among the least aggressive towards humans, maintaining a mystique that continues to intrigue and captivate the world.
