This predator-prey relationship is a result of the snow leopard's natural habitat overlapping with that of the red panda in the high-altitude regions of the Himalayas and surrounding areas. The snow leopard's ability to stealthily navigate the rugged terrain allows it to effectively hunt and capture the red panda as a food source.
