I hereby bring you important, and certainly hard to find, information on the beautiful and mysterious creatures that are the big cats. I hope this thread to be informative and of high value to the beginner adventurer, as to avoid any mishaps resulting from an encounter with these majestic creatures. I would also like to encourage discussion -- any doubts you may have, present them and they shall be cleared. Here are the descriptions of all four of the big cats: The first cat I will speak of, the Lion.  The Lion is a rather exquisite creature. It is known to inhabit dark, humid places, running away from light. It absorbs infra-red radiation in order to grow its mane. The mane bears a special secret power. It is unknown what this special power may be. The Lion feeds on moss, which he gathers from the rocks of the dark, humid places it lives on. The Lion does not reproduce, but it has been speculated that it is able to if it wishes so. The Lion is not dangerous to humans who do not approach it. The same might not be valid to humans who approach the Lion. All in all, the Lion is a good hearted creature. The second cat, the Snow Leopard.  The Snow Leopard is, of all the four big cats, the most elusive. It lives on high mountain ranges, where oxygen is little. It is known to survive in deep space. Its tail is long, very furry and pretty. The Snow Leopard feeds, but it has no gender. However, the spots in its fur pattern are used in reproduction -- when April arrives, the Snow Leopard drops a spot on the ocean floor. The spot will then develop into a full-grown Snow Leopard in a matter of days, except for its teeth. The Snow Leopard is a curious animal, and will poke humans who sleep. Obviously, it will not poke humans who do not sleep. The Snow Leopard has tainted thoughts. Next, we have the Jaguar.  The Jaguar is the beast of the jungle. Its habitat encompasses the realm of death -- the Jaguar is, therefore, an undead creature. The Jaguar has small round ears. With these ears, the Jaguar can listen. The Jaguar feeds on small children, but only those who can already walk. This is due to a strict moral code the Jaguar follows. Of the four big cats, the Jaguar is the only one who reproduces sexually, with individuals belonging to one of two genders. Due to his sexual appetite, the Jaguar can, and will molest an adult human, given the chance. Do not, under any circumstances, turn your back to the Jaguar, as it is not the most gentle of creatures. The Jaguar appreciates elevator music. Lastly, I present you the Tiger.  The Tiger is the most playful of the four big cats. It lives on the sun, where the Tiger's powers are amplified. Ocasionally, the Tiger will jump down to the earth. In this situation, all of its four legs can reach the ground. The Tiger's diet is not flexible. It may feed on sand or snow, but never on both on the same occasion. The Tiger reproduces by a very slow binary fission, starting by the tail. It is not uncommon to witness two tigers sharing the same head in the late stages of reproduction. The Tiger is a social creature, and so contact with humans is a goal any Tiger tries to achieve. It is known to easily blend in human environments. The Tiger is a natural leader. This is all I can share about big cats. If you have any complementary information, please post it. I hope this has been helpful. If not, feel free to PM me for more in-depth info, or post it here; I will be thrilled to help.

I do not believe so. That fictional robot is composed of 5 smaller robots that somehow resemble big cats. We do know, however, that there are only 4 different big cats, not 5.

Ok, did you know that 21% of U.S. households have at least one cat? what about this? The greatest number of mice killed by one cat? 28,899!

I love cats too. That snow leapard photo is beautiful. And...did you write those "facts" about big cats, Neon-Tiger? Because that's some classic material there. It made me smile big.

Now it's clear what so inspired the late Malcom X.

The panther is a phony. Notice how it drools uncontrollably. Certainly not a behaviour you would find on a noble big cat.

All the facts were gathered from studies I conducted, and experience observing big cats in the wild over the years.

But those are not big cats, only their lesser relatives, domestic cats. Domestic cats were once humans who worshipped big cats. Their feline forms were a gift from their masters, as a reward to their loyalty.

That aberration is nothing but a comical and offensive representation of a tiger. Do not think of it as a real big cat.

This is what I meant when I spoke about big cat worshippers receiving the gift from their masters. Those are suffering the transition to domestic cat form. The one with the dark red fur is in a more advanced stage of the transformation than the others.

Indeed, a sense of proudship of sort. Also seeing them hunt and fight is great, especially Lions going after Hyenas.

#37 Posted by Neon-Tiger (7679 posts) -
I'm surprised, I expected people to want to know more about big cats. I hope this is because they are already well versed on this matter -- we wouldn't want someone turning their back to a Jaguar, now would we? (unless you're into that sort of stuff)

Big cats are lovers. Not haters. If you really liked cats you'd know that.

I doubt you will find it hilarious when the Jaguar listens to your laughter and gets you alone with your back turned.

Ligers

And let's not forget:

entropyecho
A Liger is what happens when a Tiger and a Lion meet under optimal light and humidity conditions. Our universe is a byproduct of one of these interactions. Sabertooth tigers are actually Tigers that lost themselves in the ways of vampirism and bloodsucking. They are looked down upon by other Tigers.

As I mentioned earlier, house (or domestic) cats are humans that worshipped big cats and who received the feline gift from their masters.

Okay kids, lets learn something about the extinct big cat known as the American Lion:

The American Lion is an extinct animal which originated in North America and went on to colonize part of South America as part of the Great American Interchange. The body length of the American Lion is estimated to have been 1.6-2.5 m (5.25-8.20 feet). In some areas of its range, the American Lion lived under cold climatic conditions. They probably used caves or fissures for shelter from the cold weather. Their extinction may have been related to the Holocene Extinction Event, which wiped out most of the prey of megafauna. Their bones have been found among the refuse of Paleolithic Native Americans, so hunting by humans may have contributed to their demise as well.

You left out the part about how they often teleported from America to China in order to mate with Panda Bears...

through will alone.

It is not. Tigers do not have the ability (nor the patience to learn) to play musical instruments, albeit they are much capable of singing like a talented human. Freddie Mercury's vocal range has frequently been compared to that of a Tiger.
