I know that in China there were myths and legends about tigers with supernatural powers, but can anyone tell me about any myths and legends from Tibet about snow lepoards?

And before anyone asks, this is for a Tintin story I'm working one but can't devulge any info about since that's against the website's rules.

Apparently, the snow leopard is considered an protector animal of Kali, who is sent to kill those who kill the animals under Kali's protection.

Here's a bit more background info:

Can anyone also tell me about dragons in Tibet, if their relativly the same as the dragons of the Far East?

And can anyone tell me what the people of Tibet have to say about the Yeti, and what their myths and legends are about the Yeti?

Good lord, Double T, a google search would tell you this! That's all I did to get the links above.
