    Snow leopards (Panthera uncia) hunt mainly at dusk, before sunset, and in the morning at dawn. During the day, the animals sleep on the rocks. Due to their colour, they merge with the landscape, and it is very difficult to notice them.

    A snow leopard has been captured on video demonstrating its hunting skills. The predator did not immediately attack the chosen victim, a Siberian ibex, but first pushed it from the slope. The ibex, having made a dizzying descent, was disoriented and weakened, and this greatly facilitated the attacker's task. The only thing that the leopard did not anticipate was that it, too, would fall off a cliff with its victim.
