The Snow Leopard is a members-only land animal that was released on November 29, 2012. It was originally only obtainable as a promotional gift through retail membership gift-cards, but it was released in the Diamond Shop during May 2013.
Snow Leopards have a snow-white underbelly, pale tannish grey fur which is not available in the color palette, along with dark gray leopard spots and pure white eyes when first obtained. They also have rose-pink paw-pads, rose-pink noses, and rose-pink ear-insides. And like some other animals, have their own special color for their markings.
Sits with back paws folded and front paws in front.
Moves side to side thrusting arms into the air.
Sleeps like a tiger, with a twitching tail and paw pads showing.
Hops with its tail going up and down and slight movement at the head.
Jumps and then fights while doing a backflip. (This may be a reference to either Kung Fu or Tai Chi)
It is the third gift-card animal added into Animal Jam.
Because of the Play Wild fund, where 40% of the money goes towards saving the real big cats, they were mistaken to be received by purchasing a wristband and not a gift card. The same was misunderstood with Lions.
Snow Leopards are one of the few animals with exclusive patterns, alongside the Tigers, Giraffes, Cheetahs, Horses, foxes, toucans, sloths and sabertooths.
AJHQ announced in the Jamaa Journal that they are obtained through Target-only Retail Gift Cards.
When received by a gift card, the snow leopard will have a default name of simply, 'Snow Leopard'.
Along with some of the other diamond shop animals, (The Hyena and the Otter) there would be a rare purchasing glitch. The first couple of hours after they were added, players could buy them for 1,000 gems.
Along with the Arctic Wolf, they are the only animals that do not have "default eyes" that the other animals have.
Their artwork also lacks the eyes. It is the only artwork known so far not to have the same eyes as the rest of the animals.
