Hello everyone! For this week’s Trivia Tuesday I have amassed a few wild felid-related facts. If you’d like to know where I found this information just let me know.
- Relative to the lengths of their skulls, clouded leopards (Neofelis nebulosa) have the longest canine teeth of all cats.
- For its size, the jaguar’s bite force is stronger than both the lion and the tiger. One documentary even claimed that pound for pound, a jaguar’s bite force is twice as strong as a lion’s. But since I cannot recall which documentary this was (I’ve watched too many), I cannot confirm if this is true.
- The jaguar has the largest brain-to-body size of all the big cats.
- Most importantly, the Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita) is real. And it’s cute.
Which of these facts did you find most interesting?
