A snow leopards tail is so long, it helps it to balance when scaling dangerous cliff faces.

The snow leopard’s powerful build allows it to scale great steep slopes with ease. Its hind legs give the snow leopard the ability to leap six times the length of its body. A long tail provides balance and agility and also wraps around the resting snow leopard as protection from the cold. There are less than 7,000 leopards still alive.

It's a picture on the cover of a book named The Snow Leopard: Help Save the Endangered Species by Glenn Shirer and Marty Fletcher. The pictured at the Maxwell Wildlife: adopt a snow leopard is this one. I have to wonder about a foundation that leads you to believe the picture of the animal you are adopting is the same as the one they are showing.
