  • The Lynx does not have an very good future that is because people are taking over these cats habitats when this happens then the lynx will have a really hard time to look for food and there are some places where there are forest are being cut down to the reason why they are being cut down is because of agricultural uses. The other problem that these cats are facing is that people are hunting them to the reason why because they are being killed for their coats that will normally keep the lynx really warm and very comfortable they also need their fur for the really cold months comes. Their fur is really popular for their fur industly but they will need their lighter-colored belly fur the most. Some people think that there are about 90,000 bobcats and lynx that are being sold in different types of markets in every single year on every sngle place around the world. But their coats look like better on lynx than on a person where it belongs.

There are so many different cats that can come in shapes and sizes and that roam the earth today. Big cats can live anywhere in the world but they do not live In Antarctica
    8. 8. Tiger • Diet: The food that the tiger eats are or really big ungulates like wild boars, Malayan tapir and deer. When they are not hunting bigger animals then they will also go for really small animals like fowl, monkeys, and fish. These cats can also kill a orangutan but tigers do not catch them very often because they do not spent a lot of their time on the ground so it is really hard for a tiger to catch them. There are some tigers like the Sumatran will also sometimes hunt mice and other really small mammals that is when bigger animals are scarce. • Habitat/Range: Tigers can be found all around Asia . Their range is starting to declined dramatically that has lots of localized extinctions. The biggest population of tigers is in India . These cats • Size: A adult tiger can grow 4.5 feet (1.37 m) to 9 feet, The males are a lot bigger then the females are. The biggest tiger in the world is the Siberian tigg and they can weigh about 500 pounds (230 kg). The smallest tiger in the species is the Sumatran tiger and they can weigh about 250 pounds (115 kg). The size of an tiger ‘s tail is 3 – 4 feet (0.9-1.2 m).

There are not a lot of them lifted in the wild today. One of the many threats that they face today is that their habitats are getting destroyed. There are two species of tiger that became extinct for the last thirty years and there are only seven of them are about to head to extinction pretty soon. There are 5 tigers that are still living today and there are three species that become extinct for the last 70 years. • The other reason why the tiger is in trouble t because for so many years the people have been killing the tiger for their fur d so that they can make coats out if them and other different types of clothes . And they are also being hunted fro t other different part body parts that are on a tiger to.. People will also kill them for their bones to so that they can make Chinese medicine. There are some cultures that people will also hunt the tiger for sport to and to demonstrates their own bravely . . Tigers are also being killed to be sold for money to . There are about seven different types medicine that are being used for as tiger body parts. . The other big threat to tigers not just them getting killed. There are also losing their homes to.. The reason why because people are starting to live in tiger near in areas where tigers live. This will forcing these animals to move to place where it is so small that it is so hard to hunt and to raise their young. .
    9. 9. Lion • Diet: Lions will eat will big animals like wildebeest, impalas, Zebras, buffalo, and warthogs. They will usually hunt these animals in Africa and in nilgai and those animals are wild boar and seven different species of deer that those are the lions that live in India. • Habitat/range: Lions live in Sub-Saharan Africa. These cats can also be found in Asia to but there population is starting to be really endangered. The lions that live in Asia only live in a national park that is called the Gir Forest. This located in India. Lions no longer live in North Africa and in Southwest Asia. They used to live there for millions of years. The habitats that they live in are savannas, grasslands . Even through they might even live in a bush and in a forest. • Size: A lion can be big as 4.5feet long that is how big their head and their body is . Their tail can be big as 2.3-3.5 feet long.

Their population is starting to declined that can be half till 20 years and they are counting to shrink really fast. They are also getting killed for their fur . They are also getting killed for sport . This probe is also includes their habitat and the prey that they catch. They are also getting killed because they killing the peoples livestock for food.
    10. 10. Jaguar • Diet: Jaguars are known to be carnivores that means that they only eat meat. And it also means that they are predators to.

Their tail can be 2 to 3 feet (0.6-0.9 m). The Jaguar is mush bigger than the leopard . Life span When the jaguar is in the wild then they get to live about 12 to 15 years and they can live about 20 years when they are in the zoo. • Threats: Jaguars are in trouble because they do not have a lot of habitat to live on and people are also hunting them to. Jaguars are known to be The top predator in their habitat. These cats have no natural predators the only predator that they have are humans. The reason why because they want to kill them because for their spotted coats and also for their skins to. People all over the world have been killing these animals for a their skins and for their spotted coats to. These animals started to be hunted in the 1960’s till than the Jaguar population has put these cats at risk. The people that are in The CITES are making laws that can easily stop people from saling their skins in stores ans they are making them as fast as possbile but these laws are not being successful because people are not listening to these people so that means that Jaguar coats are still being sold and people are also still buying in so many different types of countries on where Jaguars are found. The other problem that Jaguars are having is that these cats are killing ranchers livestock that is because there is not a lot of wild prey for these cats to eat. So Ranchers are setting up traps and they are also poisoning these cats to. The other threat that is hunting these cats is because of deforestation that is because of logging, mining and also farming is also a problem for these cats to. This is really destroying these cats homes and that means that these cats have an really hard time looking for food and looking for a mate to have babies with.

The length of tail is 3.are 6 to 4.4 feet (66 to 84 centimeters). These cats can weigh about 85 143 pounds (39 to 65 kilograms). The males are a lot bigger than the females are. • Life span When the cheetah is in the wild than they can live about 12 years and when they are in captivity than they can live for 17 years when they are in a zoo or in a nature preserve. A cheetah ‘ s life span is between 10 to 12 years. When the cheetah is in the wild than they can live until they are 8 old. When they are living in a zoo than they can live until they are 10 years old. • Threats: There are so many different types of threats that the cheetah is going through today. The biggest threat to these cats is habitat loss. The reason why their habitats are not looksing so good is because humans are taking over their lands. The other problem that they are dealing with is that when people are taking over their lands than they will have a really hard time looking for food and they have a really easy change for the humans and cheetahs to meet each other. The other big problem is that there is not a lot of protection for cheetah cubs because they are always getting killed by other predators like lions or hyenas that is because they are in a competiton with their babies and this will also lead to abnormalities
    12. 12. Leopard • Diet: Leopards will eat just the smallest hoof stock and those animals are gazelles, impala, deer and they will also eat wildebeest.

When leopards are in the wild then they can live about 12 to 15 years and when they are living in captivity then they can live for 23 years when they are living in a zoo or a wildlife preserve • Threats : leopards are legaly being killed for their fur coats and people are secretly selling them in stores. The other problem that leopards are in trouble that is because people are cutting down their trees so that they can make buildings and they are also getting killed by poachers to and the reason why because they are getting killed for their whiskers that people are using to make potions out of them. The are so many reasons why so many leopards are so in trouble today the other reason is that these cats are killing farmers livestock and these cats are being poisoned by ranchers because they are trying to protect their animals. . Leopards are in trouble because they are losing their habitat and they are also losing their prey and the last thing that is going on with them is because people are hunting these beautiful cats.
    13. 13. Conger, Puma and mountain lion • Diet: The mountain lion will normally eat very big mammals like deer and they can also eat smaller animals to and those animals happen to be mice, squirrels, porcupines, raccoons, rabbits, and they will also eat beavers to. These cats are very fast and they will usually hunt alone. These cats can also be very active in both times of the day which is dawn and dusk. The animals that they will usually eat is wild hogs, sheep, moose, elk, rabbits, hares and they can also eat rodents to like beavers. They will also eat livestock to but they will only eat these animals if there is no wild prey in the area. A conger will normally sneak up on their prey and then they will normally attack it by leaping from a tree or from the ground. When they are killing a really big animals than they will normally pounce on the back of their neck and than they will break it by biting into the animal’s neck. • Habitat/Range: These cats can be found in places that are in deep deciduous forests, rainforests, grasslands and they can also live on the deserts that can be found in North and in south America. The types of places where these cats can be found is in western of Canada, on the west side of the United States and they can also be found in the state of Florida to and they can also live in Central and in South America. The types of habitats that they live is in forests swamps and they can also be found on grasslands as well. Congers have lots of exception from humans but this cat has an really big range and it has the most biggest range than any other mammal that lives in the Western Hemisphere. The places where these cats can be found is in Canada and they can also be found in Argentina. The ones that live in North America then they can be found on the British Columbia and they can also be seen ion the south part of Alberta , California and they can also so be found in the state of Texas to. There is not a lot of congers that is on the eastern part of the Mississippi River. The Florida panther is found in so many different types of populations that are in Florida. • Size: The length of an male conger is about 3 to 6 feet (90 to 180 centimeters) and the length of the females are 3 to 5 feet (90 to 150 centimeters).

There are some congers that can live about 8 years. • Threats:: The Conger is in trouble because they are killed because they are killing farmers livestock and they are also losing their habitats and poaching is also a problem to for these cats to. There is a very big problem with people because they are moving on places where congers live. This has made their population increase with their numbers. There are a lot people that look at congers like pests an when they do see one they will normally shot them and they can also trap or even poison them if they do come in contact with an human. These are some of the reasons why these cats have become very scarce all over North America. But it is very important to understand that these cats play a very important role in the ecosystem. These are one of the animals are known to be the top predator in their habitat. Without these amazing predators then the populations of other animals like deer will start to be unhealthy and they their habitat will get big to filled all of those animals in their habitat. It is very true that these cats can be very dangerous and with every single problem that these animals face should really be reported to an local animal control agency like the U.S. Department of fish and wildlife. But there are some people that enjoy to live and play in places that are known to be wild. So this means that we have to understand and we also have to respect the wildlife that lives around in those areas. This means that we have to think of an better way for the action of our pets, livestock and our property. It is important to learn that the mountain lion is the wisdom of power of grace. •
    14. 14. Snow leopard • Diet: These cats will eat so many different types of animals and those animals are wild sheep, marmots, pikas, hares, birds and they can also eat other animals to. The other animals that they will eat is goats. They can also eat very small animals to and they are different types of rodents, hares and game birds. • Habitat/Range: There are so many different types of snow leopards that can be found in the highest ,mountains that can be found in Central Asia and those altitudes can be bigger than 9,800 to 17,000 feet.. They can also be found in the Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and they can also be found in Russia. The other areas Asia where they can live in is in northern part of India and they can also be found on the east side of China to. There are about 60% of snow leopards that live in china. These cats can be found on every single mountain that can be found in Central Asia.. The type of habitats that these cats can be found are in places that are on cliffs and they are also on rocky slopes that can be underneath permanent snow line they can also live in coniferous forests scrub. • Size: The body length of a snow leopard is 39 to 51 inches (99 to 130 centimeters). The females are a lot smaller than the males are. The length of their tails are about 31 to 39 inches (80 to 100 centimeters). The height of their shoulders is about 24 inches (60 centimeters).

The males are a lot bigger than the females are. • Life span: When these cats are living in captivity like they are living in a zoo or in a nature preserve than they can live for about 21 years. It is very hard to till how long does a snow leopard in the wild because it does not like to be with people so it is very hard to see how long these big cats live in the wild. There are some zoos where they can live for 18 years when they are living in captivity. • Threats: The snow leopard is facing lots of different types of threats one of those threats is the change of the climate. These are some of the threats that these cats are facing. The snow leopard is in trouble today because they are losing their habitats to humans and people are also hunting these cats to. The other threats that these cats are facing is the change of the clmate that is going on in their habitat range. The other problem that the snow leopard is facing is that they are losing their habitat so that means that they can not find a lot of food for them to eat and they are also getting trouble because they are getting hunted a lot to. The places where the snow leopard is being called in places like in Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the people that live in Russia these are the type places that are killing the snow leopard for their beautiful coats and people will nomrally use their coat so that they can make fur trades out of it. They are also killing the snow leopard for other different types of reasons to and those reasons in they are also killing the snow leopard for other garments to. People will use these cats body parts and they will also use their bones so that they can make Asian medicine. There is another problem that the snow leopard is facing and that is there is not a lot of room for them to look for food that is because their area is being taken over by people’s live stock herds are starting to graze on their land so that means that the snow leopard will have a hard time hiding in the grass for when they are sneaking up on what ever animal that they are trying to catch. If the snow leopard does not find a lot of food to eat then they will start to wander into where people live and then they will start to kill their livestock but they will normally do this if they can not find any wild prey to eat.
    15. 15. Lynx and Bobcat • Diet: The type of food that the bobcat will eat is rabbits, hares, they will also eat other animals to like they can eat birds bats, and they can also eat a full-grown adult deer, but they usually hunt deer when the winter season comes. The other food that they will eat is lambs, poultry and they will also really small pig if there is ranch somewhere in that area. They will also eat foxes, weasels and they can also eat really small species of deer to, They can eat fish and eggs. • Habitat/ Range: The type of places where the bobcat lives is in forests, swamps, deserts and they can also live on suburban areas. The Eurasian lynx range can be found on western part of Europe the other places where they will live is in North Asia and they can also live in the middle east, The Spanish lynx can be found in Spain and in Portugal. The Lynx that is Canadian and the bobcat only be found on the Continent of North America. The types of habitats they like to live in are on the prairies, steppes, scrubland, temperate forests and they can also be found in taiga they can be found in tundra but it really depends on the type of species . Bobcats can be found on so many different types of places that are in the Continent of North American but they are can also be found in Mexico and they can also live in the southern part of Canada. Bobcats can also live in forests, swamps, mountains, prairie and they can also live on deserts that can be found in North America. • Size: The bobcat can grow about 24 to 40 inches (60-100 cm) long this also means that tail to their tail can grow about 4 to 7 inches (10 to 18) long. The height of these animals are 17 to 23 inches. Their length is 25 to 41 inches. They can weigh about 16 to 28lbs this is the weight of an male and the females can weigh about 10 to 18 lbs. The Siberian lynx can be bigger than 39 inches (1 meter) the other species of lynx can be grow about 19 tl 35 inches (48 to 90 centimeters). The Siberian lynx shoulder height is about 27 inches (70 centimeters), the other species of lynx shoulder heights is about 16 to 22 inches (40 to 56 centimeters). The length of their tail is about 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 centimeters). The male Siberian lynx can weight about 84 pounds (38 kilograms) the other species will normally weigh about 18 to 60 pounds (8 to 27 kilograms) but this weigh really depends on the type of gender and the type of habitats. • Life span :When the bobcat is in the wild then it can live about 12 years when they are on their natural habitat and when they are in captivity then they can live about 21 years when they are living in a zoo or in nature preserve. These cats can also live about 12 to 13 years • Threats: The Lynx does not have an very good future that is because people are taking over these cats habitats when this happens then the lynx will have a really hard time to look for food and there are some places where there are forest are being cut down to the reason why they are being cut down is because of agricultural uses. The other problem that these cats are facing is that people are hunting them to the reason why because they are being killed for their coats that will normally keep the lynx really warm and very comfortable they also need their fur for the really cold months comes. Their fur is really popular for their fur industly but they will need their lighter-colored belly fur the most. Some people think that there are about 90,000 bobcats and lynx that are being sold in different types of markets in every single year on every sngle place around the world.

    17. 17. Extinct Big cats • The extinct cat that I am doing is this type of cat that is called the Sabor tooth tiger or Smilodon. The Smilodon used to be the most biggest saber-tooth cat ( or it can also be called saber-tooth tiger). This dangerous predator used to weight about 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 m) long and least at less 3 feet (0.9) all the way down the cats tail. The Smilodon used to be a carnivore that means that they were a meat-eater and they will only eat meat The type of food that these cats will mostly eat were prey that will usually be very thick-skinned like the mastodons ( which happens to be a very hairy elephant that is now extinct). The other food that they used to eat were different types of horses and they will also eat bison as well. These cat probably ambushed their prey will usually have a very short time when they are running that is because they had very short legs so it was very hard to run fast. The Smilodon has very good hunting skills that can help these cats to caught their food and one of those skills is that they will use their very sharp saber-like teeth this is how these cats will use their very sharp teeth so that they can kill their prey and they will normally kill it by its belly and then it will let the victim to bleed very badly. These cats will are also known to be a scavenger just like any other meat-eating animal will do. The type of habitats that the saber-tooth used to look on grasslands, shrubby areas, and they can also be found in pine forests. They like these types of areas that is because so that these places can support the prey animals that they hunt. The Smilodon first came on the planet which was about 1.6 million years in the past . The Smilodon is now extinct in about 11,000 years ago. These cats used to live during the last Ice Age this was the time when the world started to become very cold. There were so many different types of Ice sheets and lots of glaciers that covered all over the land and on the sea to. • When sea level fall into the sea then then they will start to froze up turning the water into polar ice and they will also turn into glaciers as well. The Smilodon used to live during the Pleistocene Epoch ( that means that they lived in the early part of the Quaternary Period).
