cat

The cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or housecat to distinguish it from other felines and felids, is a small, furry, domesticated, carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests. Cats have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans, cats are now found almost everywhere in the world. (www.youtube.com)

There may be nearly 40 different species of wild cat running around, but only a few make it into the big cat club, including the lion, tiger, leopard, and jaguar. They're armed with an arsenal of weapons and bulk to back up one hell of an attitude. In their world, nothing is small and many things are surprising. So get ready for a vicious lesson on what makes a big cat a big cat. Is it the roar? The teeth? We'll take a look at their size, speed, claws and hunting capabilities, among so much more.

The jaguar -- some call it the most mysterious and magnificent of all big cats. Ancient cultures considered them Gods for their power, beauty and speed. But little is really known about this species that stalks the deepest jungles. Researchers have collected information about male jaguars, but half of the picture is missing ... there's little know about females. For the first time, Boone Smith brings his expertise to Central and South America as he teams up with Dr. Howard Quigley, who leads Panthera's Jaguar Program.
