Hello Children, yes I know you all know about cats. Some of you do actually own a pussy cat pet at home. However, do you know there also exist big, powerful and dangerous cats?
The Lion (king of the jungle) is actually a member of the cat family, together with Tiger, Leopard, Jaguar, Puma, Cougar, Cheetah, Lynx and many more.
The largest member of the cat family is the Liger. This is a cross between a Lion father and a Tiger mother. They can grow up to 409kg (900lbs), and stand up to 11ft on their hind legs.
The Tigon is a cross between a male tiger and a female lion. They are the second largest members of the Cat family, followed by the Siberian Tiger and the Lion.
The strongest big Cat is the Jaguar. Their jaws can bite down with 2,000 pounds of force. This is twice that of a lion, and is enough to pierce turtle shells.
