King of the Jungle stop poaching them they are natures pride - John2001

2 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

Lion looks big only because of its mane. But when it come to raw power, strength size and hunting skills tiger is the true hero. Many fights have been conducted in the past between the two majestic creatures and history is on tigers side.

When I was seven, I held a baby tiger in my arms in China. Like a kitty I wasn't allergic to, they're majestic and I love drawing their stripes! - keycha1n

Run run as fast as you can you can't catch me I'm a cheetah lol - John2001

5 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various more.

Even though I voted for tiger I also want to express my awe towards the leopards. These are the most successful of all the cats after of course the common cat. While the numbers of all the big cats have shrunken drastically through the centuries, the numbers of leopard have been less affected. That's because this creature is a survivor. Its found all through Asia and Africa whereas other have been bounded to small pockets of area. It also has the largest strength to pound ratio of all the cats. I love them...
