While some species are already dead, thanks to humans for the most part and there are several that are endangered. We have discussed them all. Now while looking close to home, we decided to come up with a list of endangered animals in India. Take a look at these 10 majestic animals that may not last by the end of this century:
10. Snow Leopard
One of the rarest of big cats and not to mention fascinating, there is only 4000 to 6000 snow leopard in the world; fewer still in India. They usually inhabit at elevations ranging from 3000 to 4000 m, but they are also seen in lower elevations. Being solitary animals, they live in dens and individuals have own well-defined territories. They have a strong sense of smell and they are well camouflaged. The extinction of snow leopards threatens the mountain ecosystems.
