    I'm talking about the one on the box. What do you think?

    Rub some marinade on your body, take off your clothes (don't want to choke the snow leopard on zippers and buttons) and run in real quick to look.

    You might have enough time to check while the snow leopard is eating your leg.

    Good question! It's hard to say because male and female snow leopards don't look that different. The male is bigger and heavier than the female, but it's hard to tell which one Apple uses is, because it's all by itself on the box without any other snow leopards to compare it to.

    Here is the original Hi-Res picture of the Apple Snow Leopard which they use on their box, and you see more of the body and there are no Apple logos on this picture.

    My guess would be a female, since the face seems slightly smaller than some faces of male snow leopards which I've seen.

    But then again, I could be completely wrong, as I am not a zoologist, I'm just a punk who knows how to Google.
    :D

    I asked my daughters and they said it's definately a girl leopard.

    I still think they should have kept the blood on the cat's mouth. It would look gorgeous on the OS X box.

    Either way, it's not going to sleep with you.

    You'll probably get a better view of the obvious identifying bits if you look at the back of the box, rather than the front.

    If there’s a box that kind of answers the question.

    Well, that depends. Step one, is there a hole in the box?

    To me, it looks like a pretty little girl.

    There's always a hole in the box, but never one he can fill. :p

    It's female. This particular snow leopard is actually my pet snow leopard, so I know.

    It is 100%, without a doubt female. There are no such animals as "male snow leopards."

    It's usually the female that does the hunting with big cats.

    Regardless, it is still sexy no matter what its gender is.
