What a young beauty! Introducing Ahava, a three-month-old female snow leopard cub that has made her public debut at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.

Snow leopards are one of the rarest wildcats to come across, sadly, only as few as 4,000 snow leopards still remain in the wild. They are often solidarity creatures, who can be referred to as the "ghost of the mountain," due to their scarce and elusive sightings.

These Photos Of Snow Leopards Nibbling At Their Tails Will Brighten Your Day

So we asked the question.. why do snow leopards nibble at their tail? Yes it's darn cute, but is there a reason for it? The answer..

While living in very cold temperatures, they will often use their very fluffy tail to block the cold from their nose/ face! But, they also do it because they are bored! Just like cats, snow leopards like to play with their tails in order to pass the time and boredom.
