SNOW LEOPARD
Facts:Feline water drinking — in both house cats and big cats — balances the liquid’s inertia, its tendency to keep  moving upward as the cat draws its tongue in, against the pull of  gravity, which drags the liquid back down into the bowl. To get a  satisfying drink, the cat must lap faster than gravity can overtake  inertia. Good timing gives the cat the biggest drink, because the column  of water is at its longest and thickest right before gravity wins out  and pulls it down, the team reports online today in Science.
