Greatest Big Cats

Nicest looking/cutest/most graceful... but most of all the K.I.N.G of the cats

The Top TenXW

1Tiger

Tigers are more aggressive, faster and stronger than Lions pound for pound, they have better coordination and fighting skills, there are plenty of videos that prove this. Most people that are bias in favor of the lion don't take the time out to observe these facts. I am by no means trying to diminish the " King of the Jungle" title from lions, although most lions live in Savannah grasslands, and a more appropriate title would be "King of the African Savannah's" where they live in prides and may be considered superior in that region (since there are no tigers there), but when it comes down to the nitty gritty. The Siberian tiger reigns supreme as "Emperor of the big cats"

Lions have better coordination and fighting skills then a tiger

Larger stronger and more agile than lions. Excellent swimmers too. Common misconception that tigers lack fighting skills is garbage. They are solitary and thus hunt on their own unlike lions. They also regularly fight off other tigers intruding on their territory. So not only can they hunt but also fight. And the lions mane means nothing in a fight with a tiger! It's only for attracting lionesses!

With black strips on orange colored skin, Tigers look beautiful than any other big cats. Indeed they are one among the most beautiful animals on the entire planet. Among all big cats Tiger is the best swimmer. It does not depend on a pride to hunt. Its high intelligence and strength enables it to kill even a larger prey on its own which is unique among all predators. The biting force delivered by the tiger is far greater than that of any other big cat. You may have seen photographers who got courage to go near a Lion's pride in jungle and taking close shots. But no one will make such a step towards a solitary tiger.
However I wonder who gave lion the title "king of jungle" before the last tiger extincts from earth.

2Lion

Lions always fight to end and to make some films people need as much as 3-5 tigers vs 1 lion. To make the film called Big Cage they needed 4 Male Bengal tigers and they were beaten one after another. they were definitely males because all of them have balls. Tigers in that film were all beaten and director of Big Cage still didn't see tiger winning. He decided to cut out lion killing, defeating and dominating tigers and not only HE chased that lion into cage but said that it was A tigress who chased lion. This was the biggest lie in history.

Lions have almost no chance to loose with a tiger. A famous tiger EXPERT Kailash Sankhala Story of the Indian tiger 1977 page 119 says a lion would beat a tiger. The tiger MIGHT have a chance to get out of this flair. Tigers because they live in deep jungles they are more flair and can swift out somehow and escape. Lion wouldn't chase it, after 300 yards it will asume dominant posture. As tigers are hevier they are slower. In some fights ...more

Lions are the real heroes because they are born to fight but a tiger hunts and eat and hide in the forest and also lion have royal lion if they hunt 10 tomes they will get 8 times there hunt but when the tiger hunts 10 times but is successful for only one or two times
Male lion hunts only animals such as giraffe, elephant, giant buffaloes, hippo, leopards, crocodiles and cheetah and many more

3-5 tigers to defeat a male lion. Come on use a little common sense. That's probably the dumbest statement that I have ever heard in my life

Lions are great and majestic animals... You can't beat them! You don't hear tigers anywhere in the bible do ya? Lions are definitely #1!

3Cheetah

I'm glad I picked this one because someone putted a lot of words and detail but they said they love all big cats and animals which is my comment! As I was saying I'm keeping as a pet lions, tigers, panthers, jaguars, leopards, cheetahs and lots lots lots lots more so you better watch your words animals are in my blood because there cute, playful, funny, clean and their very INteresting to watch and play with and I had been searching and watched plus talked about animals all my life and a zillions of animals are going to kiss huge and play with me all the time and I will never ignor and leave them by my side and one day I asked god that I wanna be the queen of mother nature because I'm going to protect feed play and give them lots of love no one loves animals more than me have a nice day P. S I bet animals will attack and hate you1!

I love the beautiful lightning speed of cheetahs. Strength is nice, but speed and grace win it for me. It's hard for me to choose a favorite, though, because I love all big cats and all animals.

So you must love lions then, the Kings of the Beasts. Please do and vote for them

Cheetahs are so fast and they are a beauty of big cats there are 5 breeds of them and they are Cheetah, King Cheetah, American Cheetah, Melanism Cheetah and Albinism Cheetah. They are my favorite animals but I love all animals.

I've always had a soft spot for cheetah's since I was a child - DUTCHlioness

4Jaguar

I think that jaguars should be first because they can take down anaconda and some can even take down crocidiles and the only cool thing about cheetahs is that there very fast and I never heard of a tiger taking down anacondas or crocs and lions there's really nothing really cool about them the only thing is that the have puffy hair and just to let you know experts are saying that there thinking jaguars are the strongest cats they have a way better bite force than a lionns have 600 bite force tiger haves 1050 bite force and the jaguar haves 2000 so get it right bro

Jaguar mite be one of the most elusive big cats but that is one of the ways they hunt and survive and even in the worst weather they will still provide and protect there family so we need to care and help to protect them and all the over great, yet hunted big cats out there so what you can to help them please!

The South American Jaguar is reportedly the most successful hunters out of the lot. They have a higher muscle density, thicker skull, higher bite force and, they climb trees as well. They reportedly crush the skull of their prey when hunting; instead, of tackling or clawing. I think that makes them... Awesome.

I think this is bigger than a cheetah

5Leopard

Leopards are graceful, tree-climbers, not only a great cat because of being a king of its trees they rule ground and trees! They are worthy of king just like tigers! I mean they must be strong to haul x2 their body weight up a tree! Don't you think!

Answer to leopard lover: Tell her how you feel, and if she does move away give her a note to hang in her room that says "Skype(Your Name)" And make her vow to Skype you everyday! If she misses one night ask her why, it could be either I had a piano recital, and you be like okay, not her fault. But if its something like Oh yeah I got home late and I forgot... you say okay... but then if she misses it periodically then there is something going on. Hope this helps!

They are so cute. This is off topic but I need help. My best friend moved away, and I have had a hard time with it, she never answers to calls and can barely facetime or Skype. But last night my new best friend called me telling me that she was moving to California, just like my other one. I really want to stop her move, and I don't know how and have a feeling I won't change anything. Some one please answer, I will be cheaking this daily for advice. To answer me say: Answer to Leopard lover. Please help me, it would mean a lot.

Leopard has powerful limbs and neck muscles make it the strongest climbers of the big cats

6Snow Leopard

Ruler of the snowy mountain tops, graceful and agile with excellent balance, beautiful coat for which they were hunted, not to mention the adorable fluffy fur, big feet, and long tail! The Snow Leopard is severely underrated. - Kit

Snow Leopards can jump the length of a bus, and their tail length is incredible, along with their beauty.

So beautiful yet so strong can brave cold climates like no other not to mention the cubs are super cute

So fat and furry and adorable

7Puma, Mountain Lion, Cougar

What? How is a cougar 10th? There is without a doubt if all the cats were the same size, the cougar would dominate all cats. Cougars are way better than lynx and bobcats. A bobcat or lynx couldn't kill a wolf but a cougar could easily kill a wolf. I've seen fights between a cougar and a lynx/bobcat and the cougar dominated them. Cougars kill prey bigger for there size. If a cougar were the size of a lion then they would kill the biggest prey. Cougars are also very pretty. There is no denying that.

Yes Cougars are kinda big but not really. Usually 130-200 pounds. About 5-6 feet in length. They look really skinny but are so pretty! Cougars are considered big cats because they can't roar. Sp they aren't small but are considered small cats. So Cougars are the best cat!

you know you're awesome when you have a shoe named after you - bendanna

I think the cougar stands out against all the other cats since firstly, it belongs neither to the big cats nor to the small ones, therefore, the cougar is unique. Secondly, it is capable of purring and meowing, a fact that let them be seen as cute, at least cuter than the big cats.

8Black Panther

Seriously. Black panthers are the most shy and mysterious of the big cats. They are rare and exotic. And awesome because their fur changes in sunlight and reveals leopard spots. Because they actually are leopards! RADD!

They are cool looking and whatnot

Black Panthers are epic, they are very rare and were once thought to be an entire different species! But zoo oligests soon discovered the hidden spots in the Panthers fur, most Panthers can be found in zoos

I love the big panther it is nice

9Amur Leopard

I hate poachers. I am a big fan and I love big cats and people are sick and mean and stupid because when found out they will go to jail. People if you have a heart, please vote. This leopard is very beautiful, and no matter what somebody would pay me I wouldn't kill this leopard for nothing, or any big cat for that matter. You would be an angel if you could help it survive. Please vote. It would be so sad if it went extinct.

I love the amur leopard. Not only is it almost extinct, they are very beautiful. Come on guys they have only 35 left in the wild!

Yes, they are beautiful cats. Poachers are stupid!

I don't want the Amur Leopard to go extinct, because I saw one last week, and I loved them instantly.

10Siberian Tiger

There shouldn't be siberian tigers on this list there are already tigers in this

Because they are the strongest of all big cats

Siberian tigers are the biggest and rarest of big cats and their also the ferstest they can be 10ft. long without their tail so they rock!

The Contenders

11Clouded Leopard

I think these are most unique in their pattern and locale. Just see one to fall in love with them.

There's nothing to add. I cannot understand when someone did not fall in love with them.

It's a really pretty and interesting cat, just search it into Google and look at the images :D

12Liger

I like ligers, but the mother needs to be cut open so the baby will come out. Also due to the lack of growth hormones, it will literally grow it self to death, because it is a breed of two animals that would never meet in the wild. So, to conclude, I like ligers, as I said earlier, but it is humans "playing" God by breeding two animals that would never meet, let alone mate, so it causes harm to the mother and the child.
Also, I found out that in a few years, Hercules the liger will weigh about 2,500 lbs.

The lion/tiger hybrid. The largest cat on earth. - Zahveed

The best of a tiger and a lion "THE KING OF KINGS" enough said

Ligers are dominant hunters come on man 12 place

15Lynx

They're my favorite wild cat. They're so pretty and they're good hunters.

Although it died out in the UK 750 years ago, biologists are looking to reintroduce the lynx into the west coast of Scotland.

I love the lynx. You should see them as little cubs. They are the most adorable things you'll ever see. So KAWAI!
