So the snow leopard holds one formal world record. We all know about longest tail etc, but that isn’t it. Guiness Book of World Records has given the snow leopard this record – it is “the highest living land predator whose range extends across twelve countries in the mountainous regions of Central and southern Asia. Amongst the highest altitudes at which this rarely-seen cat has been photographed is by cameras hidden at 5,800 m (19,000 ft)”. Just another reason this cat is so special.
