Top Ten Deadliest Big Cats

Across America, Europe, Asia and Africa, all over the world the top ten deadliest of the amazing family. The big cats!
The Top Ten
1 Bengal Tiger

Ya know? Muscle-wise, Bengal Tiger is the strongest tiger, even if Siberian Tiger is larger. And definitely VERY DANGEROUS!
Tigers HAVE to be stronger than lions; they hunt on their own and keep up their strength. Lion does not; he got his girls to do that.
Did you know? Bengal tigers regularly climb the straightest and tallest of trees faster than leopards? BETCHA didn't know that!
So they exercise a lot and keep up their strength.
And guys, a Bengal tiger's diet has a wide variety.
1. Large deer.
2. Rabbits
3. Pythons
4. Sloth Bears
5. Baby elephants (adults too, though rarely)
6. Baby rhinos (adults too, though rarely)
7. Panthers
8. Wolves
9. Fox
10. CROCODILES!
Tigers are capable of killing almost ANY animal in the world. TIGERS RULE!

The Royal Bengal Tigers are undoubtedly the strongest. They have the advantage of size and power. They are very agile as well. Their solitary lives mean they have to do everything by themselves-hunting, protecting territories & protecting themselves.
To clear the doubt: Who is stronger-the Tiger or the Lion? ; Google 'tiger vs lion' and read the wikipedia page.
Siberian tigers can overpower bengal tigers but bengal tigers are more agile. The result depends on the situation and battleground.

The Bengal Tiger, in all respect, is the most deadly feline ever. It is
1>The Second Largest cat (only after it's twin cousin amur tigers).
2>The most successful big cat in terms of catches per attempt by an individual.
3>Smartest big cat.
4>Fastest and most agile big cat.
5>Capable of hunting in all kind of terrain, say it be hills of Duars, or marshland of the Sunderbans, or dense forest of Kaziranga, or dry-land of Ranthambore.
6>Only big cat that can use land, water and trees (Although not seen very frequently, Bengal tigers have been observed to climb trees).

Tigers are the largest wildcats currently around. There's nearly no escape from this animal should it attack you. Though there are very few left to the point where around two species are already extinct. Plus, they have surprisingly low stamina. But they don't need to be plentiful or headstrong to be the absolute deadliest wildcat that currently prowls the planet.

2 Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Coming in second only to the tiger lions are no push over. From birth the male lion is destined to fight for his life, chased out of his pride by dominant male (usually his father) or those that take over (which means he'll leave much earlier:(). The females do most of the hunting and most people might call the males lazy, but keep in mind that when a rival male comes along and defeats the dominant male, he will kill all cubs, so the male has to be fit for the fight. Comparing it to the tiger, I'll admit the bigger cat has a slight advantage in terms of size, power, bite force etc. The lion would come out on top in speed and its ROAR!. In a fight the odds are in the tiger's favour although there have been too little recorded fights between the two cats to really establish a sure winner, basically the sample is too small! Also consider lions roll in prides, might be an unfair fight but hey what is?

Now to why I voted for the lion, first let me say I love all the cats but this ...more

Lion are one of the toughest cats. They are the only feline that actually trains for battle. The tiger spend most of its time away from confrontation. However though the lion may be smaller then the tiger it is more aggressive and has more exp. With fighting. Possible could even be smarter then the tiger because of how they are the only one to live in a society. The lion is a lot more dangerous then a tiger. Unless your drunk then the tiger would overkill you. The can't stand the smell of alcohol and will jump over wall to kill you

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 tiger has only 2-4 hits or bites and they already get beaten. It'll took about 3-5 tigers to defeat a male lion. It IS not true that it is myth that lions are better fighters. Lions fight almost everyday for food. Territory fights are rare because tigers and lions territory can cover almost 130 kilometers squared. Now of cat experts and reporters will always appear lion as a king and champion fighter. Lions have 75-95% chance to dominate Bengal tiger. Lions have been witnessed killing 2 Siberian tigers in one fight.

Please don't believe in any ...more

They use the ability of unification which is far more the greatest advantage lions have than other cats usually the tigers. Even lions are smaller than tigers, they have the powerful capacity to destroy so many opponents by there combined assets, among them are, social behavior, strong paws, strong bites, forceful, and is more aggressive than tigers. Tigers usually wanting to submit many times in the Lions superiority and evidences are seen in videos. There is a very fascinating fact about lions, they could solitarily defeat the 10 tigers because of there bravery that will make the tigers bow to them.

Lions are many times known to kill giant elephants, giraffe, and crocodiles while tigers are no evidences of killing giant elephants because they hunt alone and they could not defeat the larger mammal, while lions are in unity and more organized than the solitary tigers. Lions are known to defeat the world's most dangerous land animals and beasts including tiger. Tiger may have ...more

3 Siberian Tiger The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, is a tiger population inhabiting mainly the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small population in southwest Primorye Province in the Russian Far East.

A Siberian Tiger has the endurance to survive in some of the coldest conditions and is the biggest species of tiger. It can also climb, swim, run and jump with the athletic ability of a much smaller cat. The Siberian tiger is a creature that can out run any man, out swim any man and out climb any man. Lion's do so well because of there numbers, cheetah's because of there speed and leopards because of there havens in trees and up mountains. Tigers live alone and hunt animals that most predators couldn't kill in a group. Tigers are the perfect hunters and before man were top of the food chain.

I think Siberian tigers are more deadly than Bengal tigers because of their sizes in nature. It has be scientifically proven that Siberian tigers are the largest of all cats and Can kill a grizzly bear. imagine comparing a grizzly and lion so I think if a Siberian tiger can kill a bear it should be number 1 because lions are bunch of lazy animals and males do nothing than sleep for 20 hrs and kill other animals like cheetahs o hunt elephants when they are very hungry. tigers mainly rule the world and also big. Cats so losers to those who support lions tigers rule YES!

Does anyone really think a lion could beat a Siberian tiger? Here's the test: the two have to fight and if you choose correctly, you live. I realize a lot of people like lions - lions are cool - but a Siberian Tiger could easily beat a lion. A Bengal tiger would win as well but the Siberian Tiger is possibly the toughest land animal in the world. (Grizzly bear would be the only strong contender)

The tigers are the sons of the feared Saber tooth tiger. They don't exsist anymore because of mass extiction. Really? If they don't exsist tigers don't exsist. The Saber tooth tiger turned into a tiger. Tigers have longer teeth. Tigers also weigh a lot more than the so called king of the jungle lion. Once a tiger defeated 30 lions. Writers had just made up the lion as the king of the jungle. The Malaysian football team has the symbol of the tiger. There are also so many tiger simulator games.

4 Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

If you see the sentence that starts out with "I 100% love jaguars! ", you should vote for it. The jaguar is the most feared predator in South America. It could crack a skull of dear and wild boar, and can do the same to us. EEK! Their temper is very nasty. They're better than leopards because they're bigger, stronger, heavier and deadlier than leopards (even lions and tigers, and all the other cats on this list). Here are some reasons why the jaguar is the deadliest cat in the world: 1) He has a very scary temper. 2) He would attack people who want to take their skin. 3) He could fight animals that are twice its size. 4) He got his name from the Indian word "jaguara" which means "beast that kills in a single bound".

I 100% love jaguars! They're my favorite. But they can can be very tough and really territorial! They were not long ago, but they are these days. They will kill you when guarding their cubs, or when kept in zoos. They're so aggressive and fierce, they can fight and kill spectacle bears, camins, cougars, and snakes. They can do the same to us, yikes! They kill their prey or enemies by cracking the skull! EWW! If that doesn't work, it bites the throat and scraches the body so hard, it makes the blood come out! NASTY! Jaguars are deadly because they're a little bit endangered, so, stay away from this deadly nightmare, OR DIE!

These are actually the 3rd deadliest big cat, leopards are a close fourth. Siberian Tiger is just a species of tiger, not a single cat... It shouldn't be included. Jaguars are my favorite kind of cat. They combine beauty with strength, and they are REALLY strong.. They're at the top of the food chain in South America, Central America, and parts of North America. That means they are the top cat in not one, not 2, but 3 continents...(Central America is a tiny continent...) They are the Kings/Queens of the entire Amazon Jungle, that is almost as big as the United States! They are experts at hiding. If you were hiking in any of the areas I mentioned, it could be stalking you and you wouldn't know it! They love water, and will purposely attack a Caiman. A caiman is a type of crocodilian, and are fierce in the water, yet the Jaguar will strike one, and most of the time, the Jaguar wins. These battles go on either in water, or on land. On land, crocodilians try to head to their element, but ...more

Jaguar is as deadly as getting bitten by three lions, how u may ask? It's bite is 3x stronger than lions enough said. They're also faster lions and are better swimmers. They also have cooler patterns than lions and better camouflage without a stupid mane that prey can spot for miles to come. Also their ecosystem isn't as endangered as the lions or the tigers and no one hunts lions for rugs so at least tigers have an excuse. Lions aren't hunted by people because their fur is boring and bland while the jaguar has fur covered in beautiful rosettes. by the way lions are cool, but jaguars are amazing. Make them #1

5 Liger

The liger is a big, big cat (bigger than tiger or lion), but it is not as deadly as other wild cats. As a hybrid, it has many medical disorders and lacks the ability of true born hunting as it was not born in the wild. I could imagine that if it was born wild it would be ferocious, but the only area where that could happen is in a small forest in western India. But the lion species here (the Asian lion) is much smaller and the tiger would probably kill it. Although this, still don't put your guard down if you see this big cat.

A mixture of both top deadliest cats only makes a more improved cat that is much more stealthy and has a much larger size. The sheer weight of a lion, the stealth of a tiger, both cats have a powerful bound that can snap the neck of unfortunate prey in an instant. With both the fangs of a lion and the claws of tiger and the itelligence of both, this truly is a top predator.

Ligers are often very rare creatures. It's quite capable of killing you as it has double trouble attributes from a tiger and lion. However, due to rarity, it doesn't have the kill count of a tiger nor lion, preventing it from being number one.

Because it seems the most dangerous with the intelligence of of the lion and also a tiger at the same time.. They are the largest and most deadliest cat I have seen and researched about.

6 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 ...read more.

The black panther is the most dominant and deadly big cat out of any. They are very intelligent and are virtually invisible at night when they hunt, this is due to their dark black fur. They are the best climbers and can ambush prey from the trees. They have very powerful jaws and razor sharp teeth as well as nails. They are fast, aggressive, and very agile. They can adapt to any climate in the world such as jungles, swamps, rainforests, mountains, deserts, and more. They are nicknamed ghosts of the forests. They are primarily solitary animals and are very protective when it comes to their territory. Panthers fear nothing and are rarely preyed on by other species and that is only due to an invasion of their privacy or territory. From these facts I conclude that the panther is the dominant big cat, the only other cat that can take its place is the Bengal tiger.

Leopards. Definitely. I admire all of the following qualities in anyone or anything (Stealth, intelligence, cleverness, strength, flexibility, speed, agility, adaptation, resoursfullness, boldness, and especially bravery. ) All of the above rightly possessed by Leopards. They really should be recognized for their abilities more, amazingly athletic and smart, and they should definitely be higher ranked. I'm one of the smallest kids at my school, and I know that size isn't everything, and probably that if a Leopard was for sure more deadly than a Tiger, then it might not be recognized for it just because it's smaller. People say that what's on the outside doesn't matter, it's what's on the inside that doesn't count. Leopards are a ginormous bundle of awesomeness in a medium-sized, stunning package. In my opinion, Leopards are the most impressive of all the wild cats. I think Leopards are total bosses that could and should rule the wild. Why Lions the Kings of the Jungle?

Leopards are very fast, dangerous, smart, clever and cunning. They have no respect for lions. They are found in most of the places. They are mostly night hunters. They have very sharp teeth. If it attacks you, won't survive, in fact journal will die in few seconds. Mostly they are not afraid of bears. They attack gorrillas, but can nothing kill them. They have a good power of smelling and has a sixth sense. They have very deadly nails. They can attack 4 people at a time. The are good swimmers, exelent climbers and best hunters.

Easily the deadliest. Only jaguars, cougars, and tigers even come close! Leopards have adapted the features that allow them to have the ability to hunt over 1000 different species in Africa and can fight off about 30 different species of predators competing with them. They are cunning, strong, fast, well adapted to water and trees, and have excellent senses. I'd like to see any other creature on this list defeat a full grown leopard.

7 Snow Leopard The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The name "Snow Leopard" is due to its white fur, and the black spots dotted over it.

I like them because they are cute and I like cold places and snow leaopard actually lives in cold places. And they are so awesome!

I think the snow leopard is the best animal ever and I hate anyone who does not think so.

They live in the remote mountains of China and Mongolia. They are not that dangerous, especially to humans

They are also good at camouflage and it is a good ability to hunt prey.They are almost invisible at mountains.

8 Cougar The cougar, also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas.

Cougars are specifically known for pouncing above you in the mountains usually landing on your back and bitting your neck, from there, well, I think it likes human buffet. However, we must compare it's size and strength to that of lions and leopards. When you think enough, it doesn't stand a chance.

Mountain Lions live literally within the city limits in several areas of western North America, including Los Angeles and San Francisco. This makes them incredibly dangerous to small children and pets.

Mountain Lions (Cougars) are very amazing animals I think. They can do anything pretty much, they are beautiful & majestic animals (Cats).

Love these murderous beasts. So vicious yet adorable! If your on a hike and you run into one, it's best you stay away.

9 Amur Leopard

I think they are the most dangerous cats on the planet even though they are endangered they still have the same right to earn a top place. I read online and even saw a picture that a Amur leopard had killed 15 birds, 5 wild cats and 2 humans trying to make it a third.

If you do live in Asia don't worry too much because these are the third (almoast second) most endangered animals in the world. With only just over ten left you woulds be lucky to find one. That is a lot more endangered than the tiger, there are still about two and a half thousand of them left.

The fast & furious beast that can survive in extremely cold climates..
Their geographical conditions can make an efficient & fast predators with higher stamina

Dangerous as leopards but are endangered. Therefore, they have less kills than say a tiger or lion.

10 Smilodon Smilodon was a saber-toothed cat from North and South America that lived 1.5 million to 10,000 years ago. It had a short tail, but very strong legs and paws for catching big prey. It was also 7.2 feet (2.2 meters) from nose to tail. ...read more.

Smilodons themselves are by far deadlier than lions and tigers. I mean, for Pete Sake, they have fangs! However, I think deadly means killing humans and stuff like those (please correct me if I am wrong, if you do, this is number one). In that case, the smilodon is extinct so it didn't kill any humans.

Smilodon-! How can you not say it's the deadliest cat that ever lived. I mean, HELLO! Teeth up to 11 inches big. One bite from this creature and your dead-Smilodon chow.

Smilodon or, Sabertooth Cats, are the largest cats I KNOW. Also, I THINK they have some of the biggest carnivore teeth ever!

One of the deadliest apex predators of all time the smilodon is THE apex predator of the ice age.

The Contenders
11 Sumatran Tiger

The 3rd biggest tiger
2 bengal tiger
1 siberian tiger they are very powerful and strong cats

Size doesn't matter

12 Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

These guys are not as strong so they are not too deadly. I read in a book that these cuties do not have a fight response when it comes to notice a human from a safe distance. More of these awesome cats are tamed. But I respect others opinion so no hating.

Can you people cut the cheetah some slack? They are not built for fighting they are built for running. Anyway they are more incredible than all the big cats combined.

No, no, no! People, seriously. Cheetahs are actually mostly harmless to humans! They don't attack people unless directly threatened. They're hardly dangerous at all.

Cheetahs are beautiful lovely creatures.
My friend and I are both very fast therefore cheetah is our shared nickname.

13 Tigon

They are awesome! They are babies of a lion and a tiger!
