Strongest Big Cats


The Top Ten

1 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.

Clearly this is between the lion and tiger, and in the tiger comes out on top! Larger than the lion there have been numerous instances of the tiger overpowering and even killing a lion. There is an account of a tiger escaping from its partition in a zoo and got in amongst the lions; it killed three male lions before being put down. There are more. I should note that the saying of the lion being king of the jungle is incorrect as they dwell on the African plains; the Tiger is king of every jungle it resides.

Tigers are the most powerful big cats. Do research, people!

I agree with this slightly, I would have to say Snow Leopard should be higher, they are also very strong cats.
Also I would like to say that even though the Cheetah and Clouded Leopard is at the bottom, we should never think of their strength too lowly.

Tiger is the most powerful big cat as it can kill large animals alone like elephant rhino etc. Lions live in pride even though they kill medium-sized animals. Tigers have larger claws and canines and thicker skin so tigers are perfectly suited to be 'the king of the jungle '.

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.

Lions should be either 1 or 2. Lions have a way more powerful bite than a leopard and a stronger paw swipe than a tiger! Not to forget that the lion is the 2nd fastest big cat! Lions are practically made for battle as they fight and kill large animals like elephants, rhinos, leopards, hippo and buffalo! They truly fit under the title, king of the beasts.

Shouldn't this list be in order of size? Leopards, mucho tiny (no offense)

Get real lion is and always will be the king of jungle bec being king is not only about size!

Look lions have more experience than tigers and are way stronger.lions can take down giraffes,tigers can't even handle elephants

3 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 leopard most certainly deserves second place, if not first. But it's true that the tiger is the strongest. - Immortui-Fortissimus

Leopards are more powerful than a tiger they can pull a fully grown giraffe up a tree. Did you know that one can actually carry 4 buffalos up a tree at once. Leopards can survive 4 lion attacks much stronger!

Oh Leopard's climb trees and land on the antelope put in the tree ha

Leopards are the smartest big cats as well as being extremely agile and great at climbing trees.

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

I think the Jaguars are strong because they have the strongest bite of any other Big cat. They have good grips because they climb on trees and jump down to catch prey they also swim so far I think they are very dangerous and Intelligent

Jaguars have the strongest bite force of all the big cats. They're also incredible climbers and swimmers.

Pound for pound this cat is the strongest. It not only kills bears but has been observed killing full grown horses and dragging them away. Read about it.

They have the strongest jaw of all the big cats they can weight upto 90 kilos and kills crocodiles with on but to the back of their head, the Jaguar is definitely stronger and more built for the kill than a leopard

5 Puma Puma 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.

Why is puma, mountain lion, and cougar altogether on the same list? They're the same species of cat.

Largest cat in North America and the 4th largest cat

I have seen it defeating a jaguar. It is pound for pound about the same strength of a fit leopard,jaguar or tiger. Some smaller, slightly weaker ones may be pound for pound as strong as a lion. It takes down huge prey, and even fights and chases away grizzly and Kodiak bears while protecting its cubs

The puma should be at least second if not first. place they can kill any thing within three times there own size. and have mucles like a tiger

6 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.

No, they are the smallest large cat in the world.

They look boss

They're the 5th largest cat

They can jump 15 metres across and have very high hit rates. They have very strong legs to climb steep mountains,jump long distances and hunt prey about 4-5 times their size

7 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 pretty fast (and that would be insulting them actually), but to achieve that speed they have to be real lightweights. This means that the cheetah doesn't really deserve to even be seventh place. I know that's sad but it's the truth. The cheetah might score on the other lists but here he/she just drowns. - Immortui-Fortissimus

They have both intelligence and speed advantage compared to other big cats.

They're the smallest of the big cats so screw them

Cheetah because it's the fastest so it could run away

It will easily beat a tiger and a lion

12 Mountain Lion Mountain Lion 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.
