And although cubs begin to hunt independently at around 18 months, they rarely leave their pride before the age of 2.

Our photo of the day is a camera trap photo of a snow leopard with a beautiful view of the Kharlung Mountain Ridge in India. Although snow leopards live in harsh conditions, they are well adapted to their environment. Their small rounded ears, for example, minimize heat loss.
