Snow Leopards have always been one of my favorites possibly because they were so hard to find when I first started drawing them. A beautiful example of what nature has given us.
The Snow Leopard is an endangered species whose pelts command a very high price in the fur market. During the 1960s, the Snow Leopard’s total population went down to 1,000 animals, but has since recovered slightly. (info from Wikipedia)
