The accompanying video begins with an extreme close-up of the large cat lounging atop a rock. A top image of the snow leopard is also included in the video.
As the video progresses, the animal can be seen growling and assuming an aggressive stance.
The video has wowed Twitter users, who have left a flood of comments.
“Anything more gorgeous than him? One of God’s wonders!” one user tweeted. “For the first time I found this one looking Royal, detached and Happy at the same time,” another said.
“Majestic…elusive yet powerful,” said a third user.
According to the media source, snow leopards are found in 12 countries in Central Asia and prefer high, steep mountain terrain.
The snow leopard has a lovely, spotted coat that is thick enough to keep them warm in the winter. According to the website, their large, fur-covered feet distribute their weight over soft snow like natural snowshoes.
It went on to say that snow leopards are skilled predators, capable of killing animals up to three times their own weight in difficult terrain.
