Top 5 biggest wild cats

We have a top 5 biggest domestic cats and a top 5 smallest domestic cats, but what about their wild relatives? We made a top 5 list for these big cats!

5. Leopard / Black Panther


What’s this? Two cats sharing one spot? Nope, it’s the same species. The black panther is a leopard with a black coat. Its caused by melanism, a color variation that also appears with jaguars. Matter of fact, the Leopard and the Jaguar have more in common, they are very alike in appearance, except that the Jaguar is the Leopard big brother.

The Leopard has the largest tail among the wild cats. Their tail can get up to 43 inch (110cm) long. Leopards will eat about anything, from beetles to birds to monkeys and even elands.

This is in the advantage of the Leopard, because bigger predators will fight them for their prey. The Leopard will wisely walk away from any fight it knows it will lose, and simply choose a prey that the other predator won’t eat.

4. Cougar (Mountain Lion)


The James Bond of the big cats, the cougar has many identities. Its known as Cougar, Mountain Lion, Puma, Panther and Catamount. A cougar can get about as big as an adult human. Cougars can be found on the continent of America.

There are many urban legends about cougars attacking humans, but most are not true. In about one hundred years there have been 53 reported attacks, and about 10 fatalities. Cougars do not see humans as prey and try to avoid human contact.

3. Jaguar


The Jaguar is our number 3! Did you know you can also call a jaguar a panther and still be correct? That’s because panther comes from Panthera, a family classification of big cats including the jaguar and the leopard.

Jaguars can be found in parts of the continent America. This beautiful big cat’s number are still declining, but efforts are being made to preserve this beautiful wild cat.

2. Lion


Ask a random person what’s the biggest wild cat and they will probably answer with Lion. And a very logical assumption, although incorrect. But lions are the most famous wild cats, mainly thanks to Hollywood movies and especially since The Lion King.

They can weigh up to 550 pounds (250kg) and they can be found in parts of Africa. There are 12 different subspecies (breeds if you will) of lions. Although the lion is not our number 1 big cat, it is the tallest.

And of all the big cats, only in lions is the difference between males and females so obvious. The male has the distinctive thick mane, the female (lioness) doesn’t have it. Even though the males get bigger, the female lions do all the hunting.

1. (Siberian) Tiger

Siberian Tiger

The biggest, largest and most heavy cat is definitely the tiger, especially the Siberian Tiger. Weighing just under a thousand! pounds (425kg), these giants roam the snowy plains of Russia. There are only about 350 Siberian tigers alive today.

They average about 80 inch (2 meters) long. And check this out: Black bears are this tiger’s dinner. Yeah that’s right, the massive black bear is a snack to this cat. This big kitten earns our number one spot and then some!

    This is all true i looked this up because theres a girl in my grade who thinks lions are the biggest so i proved her wrong

  • gbrtnbdfgb

    Ligers and Tigons are the biggest cats in the world dont beleive me look them up

  • Arun

    Siberian, Royal Bengal, White and Asian varieties of this awesome cat are the most fearsome predators on the planet.
    Mandating tigers are the most unpredictable and ferocious tigers found anywheres.
    I’m not surprised that the giant Blackbear is a favorite snack for the Tiger.
    In general the Tiger is one and a half times the size/weight of the African Lion and unlike Lions, they are efficient solitary hunters and very protective of their kill.
    A full grown tiger is known to carry a kill as big as a buffalo up a tree and wedge it in branches to protect it. Amazing cats that must be preserved at all cost.

    Firstly, i would say that the Lion is King, and tiger a mere servant.

    1) Lions live in prides – family
    2) Lions is the only cats with something on the tail, and hair that makes in distinctively fears.
    3) it roar can be heard for 8km away.
    4) It pretects its young, and Queen, like a King..

    I can go on and on.

    The only reason a lion pride has a male is to breed. It’s the females who hunt and protect the young while the male lies in the grass grooming themselves or stuffing their bellies with meat the women give him. The male lion is nothing but a servant for the females because its the Queens who rule the pride.
