    The snow leopard (Uncia uncia) has adapted extremely well to harsh life in the high mountains of Central and Irrterior Asia. Although protected in most of its range since several years ago, the species is still in serious straits. Under the guidance of Helsinki Zoo, successive attempts have been made at studying and breeding this spectacular cat in captivity
