Black Panthers are not really a species of their own. They are just a melanistic color variant of other big cat species. In Asia and Africa, these are variations of the panther. In America, they are Jaguars. We thought that was a pretty cool thing to know.
The tiger is the largest of all cat species. They are widely recognized for their patterns of stripes that run vertically along their body. Tigers are widely popular creatures. They have been predominantly featured in ancient mythology and are still depicted in more modern films and literature. They have been used as mascots and have appeared on many coats of arms and flags. It is no surprise as these animals are so majestic that they are practically royalty.
You might also know this species as the mountain lion, puma, catamount, or panther. They can be found in Canada and throughout the Americas. They are basically spread out through the entire Western hemisphere. They are the second heaviest found cat in the New World after the jaguar. They are secretive and solitary by nature. They are mostly nocturnal, so daytime sightings are far and in-between.
It seems a bit weird to use such an adorable photo to showcase the king of the jungle, but we could not help ourselves. They are the second largest cat species after the tiger. Males are much larger than their female counterparts and can weigh anywhere between 330 and 550 pounds. The females are not too much smaller. They can grow to be 260 to 400 pounds. You can find lions in Sub-Saharan Africa and western India.
