New Style Week Day 2: Snow Leopard

Let's prance straight into Day 2 of New Style Week with the Snow Leopard!

Not your average cool cat, the Snow Leopard is one powerful kitty always ready to take a leap of faith – in fact, its powerful hind legs allow it to leap six times the length of its body! The Snow Leopard measures between 2-5 ft in length, meaning it can leap up to 30 ft! That's amazing! This wild cat is also as beautiful as it is impressive: with icy-blue eyes and a silver spotted coat, you know the Snow Leopard is always rocking it out in style.

So where can we find the elusive kitty? In 12 countries to be exact, including China, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Russia just to name a few. Visit cold high mountains in these areas and you might just spot one!

Unfortunately, like many wild animals, the Snow Leopard is a vulnerable species, and we humans are mostly to blame. Hunting and loss of habitat are amongst the reasons why the Snow Leopard’s population is steadily declining.  

We think it's very important to learn as much as we can about the wildlife with whom we share this earth. We’ve compiled a list of Snow Leopard facts – maybe you'll learn something new!

  • Snow Leopards are mostly solitary animals
  • They are mostly active at dawn and dusk
  • The Snow Leopard’s primary prey are the Ibex, Argali and Blue Sheep
  • Snow Leopards are actually gentle towards humans!
  • An estimated 3,500 to 7,000 Snow Leopards remain in the wild
  • The fur on a Snow Leopard’s belly is about 5 inches thick
  • The tail of a Snow Leopard is almost as long as its body
  • By the age of 2 years, a Snow Leopard cub is old enough to leave their mothers

Kigurumi.ca is the official Canadian distributor of authentic SAZAC kigurumi. SAZAC is Japan's number one kigurumi manufacturer, and the quality of SAZAC onesies is unmatched around the world. Unfortunately, this means that many other manufacturers will try (and fail!) to mimic SAZAC products. It doesn't take much to notice a major difference in quality between authentic kigurumi and imitators' attempts.

Fake. vs. Real: Stitch Kigurumi

For starters, imitation kigurumi are generally made of much thinner fabric--sometimes crushed velvet, which deteriorates much more quickly than fleece, cotton, and poly--and are poorly stitched together. Fakes tend to have wonky-looking faces: crossed eyes, asymmetrical features, and visible stitch defects. Colours won't be nearly as vivid, lining is often missing altogether, and features such as sleeves, tails, ears, wings, etc., will be overall much more floppy and downright sad-looking.
