Título: The snow leopard's adaptations to extreme conditions.
Especie: Leopardo de las nieves (Panthera uncia)
Descripción: Snow leopard (Panthera uncial) are extremely well adapted to their habitat in high mountain ranges and extremely cold climate. Their respiratory features are adapted in order to survive the cold mountain air. They have a big chest (a) and an extra big nasal cavity (c) for warming the inhaled, cool air, before it reaches the lungs. They also have short forelimbs with big, snowshoe-like paws, long hind limbs and a tail that is nearly a meter long (b, features indicated with arrow heads). These adaptations help them balance on the rocky precipices of their habitat and to walk on soft snow. Other adaptations for surviving in the cold include small ears (a & b) long fur with a dense, woolly underfur, and a thick tail that can be wrapped around the body to help them stay warm at night (b).
