8 KILLER CATS OF THE WILD 5-8

Continuing with our second installment of wild cats count down, we examine which member of the feline family takes first place for being the deadliest. These creatures are natural predators – cunning, stealthy and fast – with each characterized by their own set of hunting skills. Let’s take a look at the catty candidates that make our list.

#5 Snow Leopard
Snow Leopard are widely praise not only for their hunting prowess, but also for their exquisite beauty. Being one of the rarer members in the Leopard family, they stand out with their white spotted coat and sapphire eyes. With elegant movements, they are much remarked for their natural grace. What makes them even deadlier is their ability to survive in the cold, as most are found in places with cool climate.

#6 Amur Leopard

One of the most endangered animals in the world – the Amur Leopard might be small in numbers, but this does not diminish their fierceness. Like the Snow Leopard, these wild cats are often noticed for their notable good looks. They are characterized by a luscious coat with neatly patterned dots, and a heavier, wider face similar to that of a tiger. With their decreasing numbers, mankind should work to protect these beautiful creatures.

#7 Puma
Puma, also called Mountain Lions, prowl close to civilization in the western shores of North America. This makes them a threat to children and smaller animals in the city. Majestic in appearance and stance, they are dangerous and responsible for the reported deaths of many. Unlike the leopards – who are found mainly in the wilderness – the mountain lion are more common and will attack any sighted prey.

#8 Cheetah
Last on the list we have Cheetahs, one of the fastest wild cat in the world. Often used as a symbol for speed, this breed is more of a natural runner than a fighter. This doesn’t make them less of a deadly wildcat though – as they are also incredibly clever and can climb to high latitude with their strong limbs. A natural jumper, a Cheetah can leap up to thirty-five feet long in one stride!

#Bonus Liger
Although not exactly an animal of the wild, the legendary Liger is a breed that consists of part Lion and part Tiger. What can be more deadly than a mix of the two most dangerous cats?
