ITT: Big cats being majestic
>>3086335why did the cat wiggle?
>>3086372You think that's hot? I'll show you hot
>>3086335Snow leopards are the cutest
>>3086398tfw no cheetah gf
>beeg beeg kot
>>3086413Cheetahs always seem so chill. Like dogs in the bodies of unstoppable killing machines.
>>3086418No matter if they weigh six pounds or six hundred, cats just gotta start shit. They can’t help it.
>>3086421Personally I wouldn't fuck with a lioness in any scenario but if you're a fuckyou-size lion it's probably easier to get away with it
>>3086422Yup. It’s just like when housecats tussle. It probably looks painful, but neither of them are taking it seriously.
>>3086335>majestic>stuck in a zoo
>>3086418>it was just a prank bro, wtf???
>>3086377He knows exactly what he's doing
>>3086413> when you stop for a moment and light finally catches up with you
>>3086559I cant believe it lived
>>3086559See cats should be indoor only!It's for their safety!This cat's life wouldn't have been in danger if it was indoors!
>>3086573Of course he lived. Housecats have fallen from more than five stories up and walked away unscathed. Shit like that's how the '9 lives' thing came about.
>>3086348because he could
>>3086586I wonder which of the 9 lives was used up.
>>3086559Is that blood on his side at the end?
>>3086577The little niggers safety isn't the issue
funny how they try to save face and look all cool after freaking out over a tiny birb
What's he selling?>other than skooma, of course
>>3086679>khajit has wares if you have coin
>>3086377How dangerous is cheetah handeling? It's not like they're built for combat.
>>3086846bout as dangerous as dog handling i'd guess
>>3086849But dogs will fight you with no fucks given. Cheetahs instinctively avoid a fight as any injury that prevents them from using the speedforce means they'll starve.
>>3086855not pitbull handling, i should specify
>>3086859Even a dachshund has a higher human kill count than a cheetah.
>>3086348I'm guessing he wanted belly rubs.
>>3086580How the fuck did that even happen? Was the lioness in the middle of a hunt when Simba wanted his dick wet or were they fucking and the world's most retarded wildebeest walked by?
>>3086418reminds me of this
>>3086863there are a lot more people around daschunds than cheetahs though, and those who are, are typically trained. they wouldn't make gsd numbers but given the chance i think cheetahs could do respectably in terms of injuries.
>>3086898Nah, it literally killed it seconds after. Humans spooked it there for a second.
>>3087466There was a cheetah kitten at the San Diego Zoo who was born with his knees bending the wrong way. He could get around, but not very well, and he'd never be able to run which is a really sad thought in and of itself. So, to help with his self esteem, they gave him a friend and they take to each other instantly. They had given other big cats therapy dogs, but there's usually a period of adjustment. But not between these two.So, the kitten goes in for surgery and gets his knees fixed. The puppy is outside the operating room pacing the whole time. Then afterwards, the kitten is supposed to be isolated so no one chews on his casts. It took all of fifteen minutes before the puppy and kitten were back together, and the puppy could not be gentler than he was as the kitten healed up. No issues with the casts. Now, they do shows together, where they 'race.' They're both fully grown, and the cheetah is able to clock in at above 60 MPH, and they're still completely inseparable. So, if you're ever at the San Diego Zoo and you see a doggo in the cheetah enclosure, you don't need to worry yourself.
>>3087478And here they are fully grown.
>>3087479have they mated yet?when will we see a dogeetah?
>>3086679objectively the best looking animal
>>3087706All cats are the best looking animal. No exception.
>>3086561it looks so cute while it's snorkelling
>>3086867Definitely the former. Also that is a buffalo.
>>3087620It's only a matter of time
>>3088135I dont get it. Are you trying to prove cats are the best looking animal? So good looking female humans copied their look l?
>>3086577That's a wild predator bigger than you are, you dumb fuck, not an animal owned by someone as a pet in the middle of a city. If it were a pet it would need to be kept enclosed, for its safety and others. Housecats dont die via falling, but getting run over, predated, or fights. Your pet leopard would die being shot for being a threat or stolen to be placed in a zoo
>>3086348Surprised when she saw camera.
>>3086410What's this expression trying to convey?
>>3088139I look how they look in the same direction at the very end
>>3087710A B S O L U T E A E S T H E T I C
>>3086561How can male lions be so dumb and so cute?
>>3088202Secret lion wisdom
>>3086677>>3088189It's actually kind of a sad storyhttps://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2013/01/09/give-it-a-whirl-amur-tiger-returns-to-brookfield-zoo/at8cvl2/Her litter was just her and a brother. When she was five months old, the father ate her brother and tried to get her, but the mom rescued her before the father could do more than chomp her tail. As far as I know, she's physically fine, but she's very jumpy.
>>3088140Other than maybe eyeliner, what are you talking about?
>>3086422Personally i would fuck with a lioness.
>>3088145>That's a wild predator bigger than you are, you dumb fuck, not an animal owned by someone as a pet in the middle of a cityhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkO7be9Dn2c>>3089818picthats it, im going to mah cats colection
>>3089928too damn wholesome
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7inua2QVdM>dat fucking car revgotta get more gems like this video tho
>>3090479I love how so much of their behavior is identical to house cats.
>>3087478i went to the San Diego Zoo earlier this year, there was a different dog in with the Cheetahs at the time but there were signs up saying they raise almost all of their young Cheetahs with dogs because they get along so well.
>>3088139>>3088138>>3087479>>3087478Ceetah is not a beeg cat lmao
>>3092199I immediately regret this!
>>3092199mistakes were made
>>3086846I would trust a stray cheeto well before I would trust a stray dog.
>>3086410A quick rundown
>>3087478>>3087479>>3091019You can't convince me cheetahs aren't actually domesticated.
>>3086372>>3086377>>3086398>>3086401>>3086866>>3089818>>3091073you literally need to kill yourself immediately if you think "sexy" when you look at an animal
>>3092229it's a meme you dip
>>3092232Y-yes, just a meme hahaWho would even want a strong muscular cat gf that'd be weird
>>3092228Can we actually domesticate cheetos?
>>3092377Likely yeah. Just takes training.
>>3092237Yeah.. hah hah.. who would want something like that?
>>3086410finally a feline who could comfortably take on a grizzly
>>3092618Medieval paintings are full of the most random things
>>3092621Oh yeah. But even with all the goofy stylized stuff its still depressing>you will never go hunting with your cheeto bro
>>3092229I will not kill myself. Your move desu.
>>3086377>>3086351reminder that it is a male cheetah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMH0s8ylXJ4the nuts on this man
>>3087479I hate to be thay guy, but what's the average lifespan of a cheetah?It'd be real depressing if one of them have to watch the other passes away.
>>3093453According to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, cheetah’s average lifespan is 8-12 years. And now I’m imagining distraught doggos that want their spotty friends back. Fuck.
>>3093718That’s in the wild, captive cheetahs can live up to 20
>>3093728That’s better. At least comparable to an average doggo.
>>3093718>>3093736Dunno what's happening where you're from, in my experience 8-12 years is pretty much bob on for a dog's lifespan. 20 is ancient.
>>3086418The lion’s reaction is pure Dave Chapelle “I’m sorry Officer, I didn’t know I couldn’t do that.”
>>3086372somethings wrong with you boy
>>3092430Domestication is not training, it is selective breeding for specific traits.But I mean, look at how much of a genetic mess cheetahs are, and how specialized they are, and how tolerant of humans they are. Its almost like they have already been selectively bred to be that way...
>>3094023I wanna brush their manes and play with their ears but they’d eat me. Life is unfaaaaair.
>>3086561Mufasa, you falling has given me an idea.
>>3093970Enzo is best tiger. Such a good boy.
>>3094175>Manlytears next to a common housecat
>>3094175that thing looks like a cow
>>3094175Why are they so fucking big?
>>3088192Slight disdain, like you've overstayed your welcome, but he's too lazy or comfortable to kick you out.
RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY SALAD?
>>3092377As much as you can domesticate any cat.Which technically they aren't.
>>3094267Pretty much this. Cat behavior is pretty similar across species to a remarkable degree. So, you have your cat who is super cuddly and loving and who will still randomly scratch or bite you, just because the mood strikes them, have no sense of personal boundaries or space when it comes to you and plenty of personal boundaries when it comes to them, tons of energy and they do not give a fuck about your furniture or your carpet. Now take all that behavior and apply it to something much bigger, heavier, strong and less willing to give a fuck. They could be your best friend for years and then you’re ten minutes late with food and you accidentally step on their tail and that’s it for you.
>>3094270cheetahs are basically dogs when it comes to behavior so whatever
>>3094276They l also have enormous claws that, unlike most other cats, do not retract.
>>3094276>aww he's smiling :)
>>3094261lol cats are so gay
>>3094225because genetic differences between Tigers and Lions, Lion male genes promote size of the offspring to ensure that his offspring out-compete any other offspring in the womb at the same time. Genes from the female inhibit growth to ensure that as many offspring as possible survive and that they all have an equal chance. Tigers on the other hand are solitary so they don't have that kind of limiter gene, therefore Ligers are basically Lions without any genetic limit on sizeTigons(male Tiger and Female Lion) conversely are significantly smaller
>>3094023Blessed, I want to wrestle with one and bite it on the schnozz
>>3094212Manlytears next to a scottish fold kitten
>>3094318What a sweet little dumbass
>>3094261Lions just can't compete.
>>3086415Funny, in zoos they actually have "calm" dogs to calm them down so they are less agitatedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeq-eMBsRV8
>>3094284Because of being always out they are naturally much duller than other big cats. Cheetah claws are used for grip and traction while running, climbing and holding on to prey. not outright shredding thier opponents and food. So yeah your house cat has sharper claws than a cheetah.http://www.cheetahspot.com/claws.php
>>3095022Huh. That’s pretty cool. Still, a cheetah’s gotta have a ton of space to run in. I mean, if someone with a ton of land in Montana wants to have a spotty boy as a friend, I don’t see why not so long as the person can show that they can give the cheetah a good life.
>>3092627That just makes it better desu
Where can I get a hot cheetah gee eff
>>3094552this thread needs more snow cats
>>3087207>>3086898There actually have been cases of big cats taking care of prey animals before, although they usually end in the prey being eaten eventually or the prey escaping eventually
>>3086561Glad to see that there are retards that don't look at where they're walking in every species.
>>3086679Moon sugar, of course
>>3094849dat lioness face
Is Ocelot /bigcat/She's cute
>>3096368>>3096363Tfw a real aminal looks like a stuffed toy
>>3086335>>3086392They act like normal house cat. I wonder if they enjoy a scratch to the base of the tail too.
>>3094552Those paws are ridiculous but make sense given it’s environment and hunting style.
>>3093940This one just looks retarded.
>>3096562He looks like a house cat laying in a sunbeam.
>>3086580Ah foodplay in sex, nothing better.
>>3094175Holy fucking shit, imagine you're hunting in the jungle with just a spear and one of those comes after you. Humanity would never evolve if our predators were that size.
>>3096679Except they fucking were that size you idiot.We killed most of them once we developed tools.
>>3096691Tigers and lions weren't that size when we were evolving, the fuck are you talking about? Saber-tootheds weren't that fucking massive.
>>3086377A big cat is fine too.
>>3094849>how dis make you feel mane boi?

>>3097837Someone post that image of a cheetah cub with a look of resignation on his face as his mother is about to lick him.
>>3100740Can't find it, take this one instead
So /an/, which cat is your favourite cat?
>>3090978this is the worst gif I have ever seen
>>3096695>>3096679I mean bears are pretty big and have been bigger and saber tooths (smilodon) have a range of sizes but some are that big. Check your prehistoric megafauna predators I'm sure you could find more. Its disputable how much interaction humanity had with these animals though.
>>3100847Prehistoric bears were fucking enormous and ancient humans still killed the fuck out of them. >This is just an average-sized short-faced bear. Image from Dantheman9758 on the Wikimedia Commons. Genetically very similar to the Arctotherium genus, the giant short-faced bear is one of the few species that dared to rival the Arctotherium in size as well. The species first appeared roughly 800,000 years ago in what is now the United States, and soon spread in Canada. It is believed that the bear averaged 2,000 pounds and stood six foot tall at the shoulder. Fully drawn up, these massive bears could reach up to 12 feet.Source: http://www.outdoorhub.com/amp/index.php/five-prehistoric-bear-species-mop-floor-modern-bears

Behold, the deadliest cat in this thread and the entire world
>>3088286That's one good looking arab
>>3100887I wanna kiss it's soft little head
>>3092621It was their form of shitposting
>>3099217sadly they can't produce offspring
>>3093970I love the first thing animals do to things is stick their nose in it
>>3096871"it's not fat, it's fluffy" but unironically
>>3097837how round the eyes are makes them look wide open, and how much round iris you can see usually shows surprise or terror in humans.
>>3100789you posted it
>>3088135This guy is like the Giga Nigga meme of wolves
>>3089928holy fuck what a couple of bros to adopt that guy and get him out of a petting zoo. good humans doing good things for a good animal
>>3101436Why the fuck is a cougar in a petting zoo in the first place?
>>3094175Khajiit has wares... if you have coin.
>>3101572>Why the fuck is a cougar in a petting zoo in the first place?Snacks?
>>3101888Natural selection is also a good reason
>>3092377The problem with truly domesticating cheetahs is one of the lesser known requirements... Getting them to readily breed in captivity. They don't.
>>3102001Yet another instance of cats not doing something, simply because you want them to"please breed your species back from the brink of extinction">chases tail for an hour and lays in the sun
>>3094175Jesus, thats a fucking battle cat. You could ride that thing into battle as a fucking mount.Quick, get the eggheads to figure out how to use CRISPR to make them not sterile. The world needs this. I NEEDS THIS.
>>3096363>>3096368>You're pretty good
>>3102001>>3102005Don't Cheetahs get that problem Orcas get where their natural ranges are so huge that being confined in captivity makes them go insane?
>>3102686That’s the other thing with keeping a cheetah. They NEED to run. They don’t do well when they can’t run as far and as fast as they want to, whenever they want. The San Diego Zoo’s enclosure for them is ENORMOUS. Bigger than what they give tigers and lions, because they need that space for their mental well being. In order to be able to take care of a cheetah and do it well, you need A LOT of land. And even then you need to make sure that they can’t get over, or under, the fencing that you install. I’m not saying it’s impossible to keep a spotty boi and do a good job, just that you need a huge amount of money to do so, and you need to have done a ton of research.
>>3102001On that topic, why don't we use IVF on animals on endangered species that won't fuck?
>>3092627those are two different cats, the one on top of him is a boy, the one laying next to him is female, I made both of those webms

>>3102003>God DAMNIT he's FUCKING ME, RIGHT! NOW! AREN'T YOU GOING TO DO SOMETHING!?>Well I -was- jerking off, but now you're really killing the mood...
>>3105272Are house cats even domesticated or do they conveniently just happen to be OK with living in a house with people?
>>3088188This plus defensive position attempt.
>>3107292And his body just wasn't doing what he wanted it to in order to turn over. I mean, who among us can't relate to their body suddenly failing to cooperate at a random moment in time?
>>3107299Precisely. You dubs only make it ring more true.
>>3105272Calling them the deadliest cat is just stupid, more like most successful cats.
