Big Cats

With a lithe, muscular body, acute sences, highly evolved teeth and claws, lighting reflexes, and camouflage coloration, cats are model hunters. In fact, cats are the most specialized of the mammalian flesh eaters. They are unusual in that all species appear remarkably similar: the differences between tigers and the domestic cat, for example, are surprisingle small. As a result, classifying smaller cats remians problematic: they can be either grouped together in the genus Felis or subdivided into several genera. Cats are found throughout Eurasia, Africa, and the Americas (the domestic cat is found worldwide), from alpine heights to deserts. Many species live in forests. All except the largest cats are expert climbers, and several are excellent swimmers. Most cats are solitary.
