Most people haven’t heard the call of the rare snow leopard. If you were to guess what it sounded like, chances are you would compare it to the sound of a lion’s roar, or a tiger’s snarl.

Many people have compared it to the infamous ‘Wilhelm Scream’ found in lots of Hollywood movies.
The video above was taken in the mountains of northern Pakistan and was released by The White Lion Foundation, a UK wildlife charity.
