Any fans? i love them. I like Lions, Tigers, Leopards but my favourite of all is cheetah's. They are so cool when they hunt their prey. They are very fast :)

I want to do a safari in Africa one day and see them. I like all the other animals there too like the Giraffe, Elephants, Zebra, Rhino...

Fun fact: Cheetahs aren't actually big cats! Big cats can roar, but cheetahs meow and behave like a big house cat :P

Cheetahs are so rare you would be lucky to see one. Leapords are everywhere. I am going to Africa on safari when I graduate.

I know they are endangered and that makes me so sad and angry :mad:

I like snow leopards the most, followed by lynxes, linxes and ligers.

I have always loved tigers (yay LSU), and I think they are some of the most attractive animals in the world.

And yet there are still hunters and trophy collectors, which are allowed to hunt such animals for a high amount of money.

I know this isn't a debate thread, but trophy hunters are who help keep many species from extinction. Remember, if it pays it stays.

True, I also think it isn't a thread to discuss the issue of extincting species. But I in my opinion this if-it-pays-it-stays-thinking is indeed the reason why species like big cats become extinct.

btw: In this category I place also breeds like Ligers. Although those creatures particularly fascinate me, I find it rather pointless to cross species that are barely able to survive in nature. And all it's just about profit.

But that should really be the topic in another thread. Just wanted post my opinion in conclusion.

they're really cool but I wouldn't go near any big cat, even a "tame" one much less keep them as freakin pets. it's a wild animal with killer instincts and if it wakes up on the wrong side of the bed one day it'll bite your head off. fuck that shit lmao

EDIT: also I always forget how goddamn huge tigers are, they're the size of a small horse and probably weigh as much if not more. yikes.

Right. I wouldn't petting those big cats. Even small cats prove domestic cats haven't been truly domesticated after thousands of years living with humans.

But as a ranger, ethologist, filmmaker, whatever ... it would be interesting to work with them or if it's just about lions, panthers, tigers etc, to be able to observe them in their natural environment.

Big cats are awesome as fuck. I'd be the first to die if in the event that we're surrounded by a wild pack of lions though. I'd be stupid and try to run without thinking. They're cool though.

I'd love to come upon a big cat, but only when I'm holding a shotgun.

Good luck with that. Do you about as much good as a bb gun.

Oh, you've tried hunting big cats with a shotgun? How'd that one go, sugar?

On topic: I guess my favorite big cat would be a leopard.

you only hunt big cats with a large bore rifle. Ive only ever heard of shotguns being used to follow up injured leopards if they run into the bush

Ever heard of a Lynx cat? If you haven't, definitely look it up.

I don't know if they're like huge, but they're medium sized I guess. They're freaking awesome, though.
