The big cats are wild hunters and killing machines, even when held in captivity for a long time. See how these ones (lions, tigers, and all) behave once they notice that a possible pray is not looking.
Ready for a kill at any time.
Tame, you said?

When it’s time for bed for the snow leopard and the camera is here to capture the moment:

Kevin Richardson is well known for his success in approching lions enough to share games with them like if they were big kittens (obviously very big, too). This time, with the help of a portable video camera on his head, you will be able to experience some of what is happenning to him when a big male lion runs to him.
Listen to Kevin explaining that the back of the ears have the smoothest fur.
Then, you’ll also be able to admire spotted hyena friend of Kevin (they aren’t cats, but they are much nicer than what you’d believe).
And remember what Kevin says at the end: “If we carry on along the same path, we’ll not see lions in twenty years”.
Is it really necessary to mention that you should not try this with lions not from your own home?

Most of these photos (from LightStalking) are taken in zoos, but they look gorgeous anyway.
Happy new year to all big cat lovers.

That should be the title of this video where a wild cheetah goes exploring this weird object left by a wildlife videographer: a GoPro camera.
You wouldn’t expect a cheetah to be so cute.

Sarah Esteje has made pretty impressive drawings using only a cheap ball pen. Like this tiger.

Felis Leo - Johann Matthäus Bechstein
A picture from the 8-volume series by Johann Bechstein, ‘Getreue Abbildungen Naturhistorischer Gegenstände’ (Realistic Pictures from Natural History), issued between 1795 and 1807. Seven of those volumes are available from the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg. (click through on a volume – band – then on anything below ‘Inhalt’, and then on ‘Vorschau’ for thumbnail pages.)

A very nice looking poster for a WWF campaign against desertification. With a leopard.
