How long is a snow leopard's tail?

The Snow Leopard Trust team in Mongolia has been monitoring four cats for the last few months. Recently on their blog they measured the tail of one of the cats – called, of course – “Longtail” – and found that his tail is 92 cm long, which is almost as long as his body, (118 cm long).
Snow leopards’ long tails are very useful. They can wrap them around their bodies to keep warm in the cold and they use them to balance as they run and jump along dangerous rocks and cliff.

    I am the author of nine self-help books and am writing my first novel. The snow leopard plays a central role.
