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 Bengal Tiger

I love Bengal tigers. They're my favorite. I know a lot about them. I even wrote a 20 paged report about them. Yeah I know right. It took me like 3 months.

All of the big cats/normal cats are my favorite - ArcticWolf

They have got to be one of the most deadliest cats in the world. They way more than any other big cat. The reason why I put these beutifal animals behind the lion is because they are more shy and tere are less of them. - biddiebob99

Three... Two... One... Fight in ten seconds the fight is over. Result? Tigerownslion

2 Lion 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.

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

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

Lions are majestic and more social and use teamwork, whereas tigers hide from danger, but are good in fights. Even though lions are smaller, they are respectable, though you won't see a lion littreally tearing a guy's face off, but not so uncommon with tigers and jaguars.

They are one of the toughest cats and wont go down without a fight. The reason why lions will always beat tigers is because the use their mane as amour, they have more experience with fighting because they always fight to take over prides and they also have a pride to back them.

Lions should be 1 on the list

3 Siberian Tiger 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.

I see all fans and normal society people voting and putting in their opinion in the comments it makes me laugh on how ignorant and how they don't know the simple truth with solid information firstly Not only is the tiger especially the Siberian tiger the largest big cat but also the strongest their strength is way more than a lion second people say they avoid fights well that's because tigers are solitary animals so if they get injured in the fight even if they win the fight they would struggle for survival and can't hunt while social lions have others to help and since male lions the reason why most people like lions they protect the territory not hunt which is why they take on any animal it's there duty and if they are injured the females hunt and take care of them. Now Tigers are more aggressive in their natural state and comparing the strength of 7 African lions to 1 Bengal tiger Bengal not Siberian lets compare. Now it there has been a case of 7 lions 5 females 2 males killing a ...more

Ok one we should group tigers under one group so we don't argue. The siberian tiger is the biggest big cat in the world. It would send a lion running for its mama with its tail between its legs

A Siberian Tiger is obviously the most dangerous big cat and probably the most dangerous animal as well. They have even been proven to kill brown bears in Russia and they could kill any other big cat.

If you think the Lion is the King of Animals, take the Lion to Siberia to Russia and you will see that it is not true

4 Jaguar 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".

People who think a jaguars are weak. HOW IS A JAGUAR WEAK IF. THEY CAN OBLITERATE A CAMAIN. A jaguar are the only big cat that could swim very well. Even though caiman/crocodile have an advantage in water a jaguar can easily kill an camain

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!

Jaguars are the coolest cats ever

5 Liger

Ligers is actually the strongest cat it can kill a elephant, rhinos, buffalo, lions,tigers and kill all the animals

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. - Destroyar4699

Liger should get 4th because it's a mixture between a female tiger and a male lion

6 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.

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 to me are the smartest of the big cats. I mean, the fact that they take their food up a tree to prevent it from being snatched is pretty tactical. However, Leopards cannot match the bulkiness and strength of what is a tiger and lion. - Destroyar4699

They are the most intelligent Cat our of all big cats In my opinion. Their stealth makes it very hard for the prey to try to escape. It if very sad to see people killing them and population decreasing. They have many skills that make them an outstanding predator. I think they are very under rated and can stand against any other big cat. - PhatList

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?

7 Snow Leopard 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.

8 Amur Leopard Amur Leopard

Sadly there are only 70 of them left - lemur

Dangerous as leopards but are endangered. Therefore, they have less kills than say a tiger or lion. - Destroyar4699

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. - biddiebob99

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.

10 Smilodon 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. more.

I wish they were not extincted cause I want a pet Smilodon, no joke - Nightkillo

Can't be that deadly its extinct LOL

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. - Destroyar4699

Deadliest cat to ever live, with 9-inch claws, was equal to the utahraptor, a very deadly dinosaur.
It made the thylacosmilus extinct

11 Cheetah 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

They are built for running, not fighting!

Cheetah's are actually more submissive than the other big cats. They have the flight response. - RisingMoon

The fastest land mammel. Canreach 60 mph in 3 seconds (as fast as some cars on the motorway) - biddiebob99

They are the fastest cat. They are really beautiful animal.
