  1. 1. Fun Facts About Big Cats! ENTER
  2. 2. Jaguar: Panthera oncaCommon Name: JaguarKingdom: AnimaliaPhylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)Class: MammaliaOrder: CarnivoraFamily: FelidaeGenus: Pantherinae PantheraSpecies: oncaMisc.: The Jaguar and the Leopard are often confusedwith one another in zoos. Their coloring and markingsare so similar that it is difficult for people to distinguishthem. The difference lies in the center of the Jaguarsrosettes, because unlike the leopard, the Jaguar hasspots inside of its rosettes! The Jag is also a muchstockier animal than its cousin, with shorter legs and tail– giving it more of a pit bull type appearance.
  3. 3. Common Name: LeopardKingdom: AnimaliaPhylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)Class: MammaliaOrder: CarnivoraFamily: FelidaeGenus: Pantherinae PantheraSpecies: pardus (asian)Misc: This cat, in its melanistic color phase, is often mistakenlyreferred to as a black panther. This species has been (and isstill) illegally hunted throughout its range for sport, and for itsfur.The leopard is capable of running just under 40 miles per hourfor brief periods. It can leap more than 20 feet horizontally,and 10 feet vertically. It is also a very adept swimmer.
  4. 4. Common Name: LionKingdom: AnimaliaPhylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)Class: MammaliaOrder: CarnivoraFamily: FelidaeGenus: Pantherinae PantheraSpecies: leoNOTE: The lions discussed below are African and Asian.Misc: The Lion is the only cat with tufted tails (both sexes) and manes(males), with the manes allowing them to be the only cat which youcan distinguish gender from a distance. They are also the only truesocial cat and live in groups called “prides.” The lion has often beencalled “the King of the Jungle,” but that would be most inaccurate. Thelion’s habitat does not include the jungle, and therefore, the correctphrase would refer to the lion as “the King of Beasts.”
  5. 5. Common Name: TigerKingdom: AnimaliaPhylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)Class: MammaliaOrder: CarnivoraFamily: FelidaeGenus: Pantherinae PantheraSpecies: tigrisMisc: This species has been (and is still) widely hunted throughout itsrange for sport, for the fur trade, and for the traditional Asian medicinemarket. For the medicine trade – no part of the Tiger’s body goes unused (seediagram below). The tiger is one of the best known mammals, and has become asymbol everywhere for conservation. Today, sadly, there are more tigers in captivitythen exist in the wild. There are thought to be beween 5,000 and 10,000 tigers in U.S.cages and 90% of them are in miserable roadside zoos, backyard breeder facilities,circus wagons and pet homes. Read about the conviction of those involved in cannedhunts in the US.
