So as you may or may not know, big cats are clumped into this nebulous category of “big cats” mainly due to the fact that they are, well, bigger than other cats (domestic or wild), are apex predators, and can roar- except for the Clouded Leopard, Snow Leopard, Cheetah, and Puma (aka Cougar).

Many of these big cats face endangerment. Some subspecies even face critical endangerment, such as the Sumatran Tiger  with only 300 left in the wild!

They are all unique, distinct, and beautiful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a favorite. So let me know which cat is the “coolest” to you!
