Wild animal figurines, like this Schleich 14838 Snow Leopard Figurine, allow kids to play and learn at the same time. The snow leopard has a light grey coat with black rosettes. It is a large cat that lives in the high rocky mountains of Central Asia. It feeds mainly on sheep, ibex and goats. Thick fur protects it against freezing cold temperatures, but its beauty means that many animals fall prey to poachers. That's why the snow leopard is an endangered species. A special feature is its tail which, like the snow leopard from Schleich Wild Life, is nearly as long as its body. Toy animal figures are recommended for children ages 3 to 8.
