- For its pet counterpart, see Snow Leopard (Pet)
The Snow Leopard is a members-only land animal that was released on November 29, 2012. It was sold from the "Choose an Animal" menu when creating a new animal and it was also found in the Diamond Shop. They traveled on October 13, 2016, and returned on April 13, 2017.
They were originally only obtainable through membership gift-cards. The Snow Leopard officially became endangered on Animal Jam March 5, 2015. They did return but are now only available to players who have already purchased one.
Snow Leopards have a snow-white underbelly, pale tannish grey fur, not available in the palette, along with lilac 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.
|Sit||Sits with back paws folded and front paws in front|
|Dance||Moves side to side thrusting arms into the air|
|Sleep||Sleeps like a tiger, with a twitching tail and paw pads showing|
|Play||Jumps, then fights while doing a backflip. (This may be a reference to either Kung Fu or Tai Chi)|
|Hop||Hops with tail going up and down|
- 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, and Horses.
- AJHQ announced in the Jamaa Journal that they are obtained through Target-only Gift Card.
- 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, (Hyenas and Otters) 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.
- They have their own Minibook.
- Snow Leopards now have their own short, "Cool Buddies".
- When spartan armor is worn on them, it appears to be fused with elf armor.
- When a Snow Leopard is wearing any sort of weapon item, it may float above the Snow Leopard's back.
- They have a pet counterpart, the Pet Snow Leopard.
- Snow Leopards were put on sale for the second weekly Diamond Shop sale.
- A promotional offer for this animal began during January 2017: when redeeming a membership retail gift card, the player will also receive the Snow Leopard Bundle, which includes a Snow Leopard.
- The snow leopard alpha is named Jade.
