The mountain lion is a large cat that is also known as a cougar, panther, yellow cat, puma, and several other names (Danz, 1999, p.13). Shoulder heights average around 30 inches and length is approximately eight feet (“Mountain Lion”, 2014). The tail is about one-third of the entire body length and these cats typically weigh between 75 and 175 pounds (“Mountain Lion”, 2014). However, the largest mountain lion weighed 276 pounds and was killed near Hillside, Arizona (Danz, 1999, p.44). The legs of the cat are very muscular and the back legs are much longer than the front, allowing the cats to increase their leaping abilities (Knight, 2005).
Another kind of wolf i sthe red and the abyssinian wolf the red wolf lives in the southern united states and southern africa there's only fourty of them left. the abyssinian wolf lives in Ethiopia, East Africa, theres only forty of them left. Wolves are slender animals and can run up to 40 mles per hour. Wolves can bring down an animal three times it's own weight, they only weigh up to 90-120 pounds. The wolves diet is,they mainly eat meat, which includes wild sheep, wild goat, musk,and domestic cattle.
. While elephants are the heaviest; giraffes are most certainly the tallest animals on earth; growing upwards of 20 feet tall. Giraffes are browsers which basically means that they feed on twigs and leaves from the tops of tree but generally do not eat grass. A giraffe’s remarkably long neck allows them to reach foliage that is otherwise untouched. Giraffes eat a lot too; up to as much as 66 pounds a day.
According to jim menster a private breeder of wolves in moscow idaoho, he states wolves have the similar characteristics as dogs and as soon as we learn to get over our fear of wolves we can all learn to appreciate this animal. Many wolves are beeing bred and tried to be introduced to the wild all though once a wolf is domesticated it is very rare for them to be able to survive on their own. Wolves make good pets and are able to function with humans. They have been applied to the sport of doggsledding as recent as the 1950s. Wolves are a crazy animal with a nack for survival.
Cave Lion 5. Chalicotherium The cave lion (Panthera leo spelaea) was probably the biggest lion that ever lived. It was 25 percent bigger than lions today and was up to about 11.5 ft (3.5 m) long. was an early, herbivorous mammal from the Miocene. This forest browser was an ungulate with large, clawed feet (instead of hooves).
The ring tailed lemur is able to stand on its two feel however, not for long. Walking is not quite an option for the lemur because of how the pelvis is set up. A walking lemur is close in resemblance to a walking dog. They have spure like digits (PIN) and even though they can climb, there are the most terrestrial of all lemuroids. My favorite part about them is how they sunbath in a pose as if they were worshiping something.
The gray wolf hunts in a pack that can consist of two to a dozen of wolfs. However, their prey can depend on their size of the pack needed to kill it. When in the pack itself, the Alphas which is the head female and male are the dominate pair over the rest of the pack, which they are the one who make the calls on the hunts and everything else. The lowest of their packs are the Omegas, which are usually the ones that are tortured and picked on by the pack. The Alphas are always dependent to their packs by always making everything available to its pack like the food and at the time of its breeding stage.
These measurements show that the present Amur tiger is longer than the Bengal tiger and the African lion.  According to modern research of wild Siberian tigers in Sikhote-Alin, an average adult male of more than 35 months of age weighs 176.4 kg (389 lb), the average asymptotic limit being 222.3 kg (490 lb); an adult tigress weighs 117.9 kg (260 lb). The mean weight of historical Siberian tigers is supposed to be higher: 215.3 kg (475 lb) for male tigers and 137.5 kg (303 lb) for females.  In May 2011, a male called "Banzai" weighing 207 kg (456 lb) was radio-collared. This individual is heavier but smaller in size than a previously radio-collared male.
Although cheetahs are good at catching prey, they don’t always get to keep it. Lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, and even a brown hyena can drive a cheetah from its kill. A cheetahs behavior may be unique to people. Male cheetahs live in small groups, females live alone. When a cheetahs mating season comes a male will come out of their group and mate.

Some of the main threats to the survival of this species are: Forest fires Inbreeding Development Lack of political commitment Illegal poaching is another major cause for concern. Amur leopards are targeted for their striking, spotted coat, which can sell for up to $1,000 in parts of southeastern Russia. With less than 40 individuals remaining in the wild, the death of one leopard can have severe consequences for the species as a whole.
