The term "big cat" is not a scientific definition.  It is term used to describe a group of large species of wild cats.  Although there are many such species, there are a select few that are part of the "big cat" club some of which include Cheetahs, Cougars, Jaguars, Leopards, Lions, and Tigers.  All big cats are carnivores and "apex predators".  Apex predators are those animals at the top of the food chain with no predators of their own - not including man of course.

Did you know... 

that only Jaguars, Leopards, Lions and Tigers can roar?  These are the members of the genus "Panthera".

 

 

Cougar

The Cougars are located in the Canadian Domain Section of the Toronto Zoo.

Cougars [Puma concolor] are also called "Puma", "Mountain Lion", "Panther" or "Catamount".  They are solitary and nocturnal.  Cougars are carnivores with their main diet being various species of deer.  Unlike lions where the males often baby sit cubs while the females hunt, only female cougars are involved in raising cougar cubs.

When hunting, cougars typically stalk their prey and then pounce when close.  

Want to know more, why not visit the Toronto Zoo’s website and read all about Cougars here.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
