- 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 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, 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 a part of a 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 Snow Leopard Pet.
- 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.
