Big cat

The informal term "big cat" is typically used to refer to any of the four largest (living) members of the entire Panthera genus. Among the five total species within the Panthera genus, these four are the only cats that are able to roar. In descending order of their maximum potential size, these four species are: tigers, lions, jaguars, and leopards, with the tiger (Panthera tigris) being the largest. A more liberal and expansive definition is sometimes used which may include the snow leopard, puma, clouded leopard, Sunda clouded leopard and/or cheetah, although these added species do not roar.

There is a man on Instagram that has a animal safe haven that rescues and saves big cats, he even save the babies and posts the picture of them. It is amazing to see the big cats just walk around his house and interact with everyone that lives with him. Look up "blackjaguarwhitetiger" on instagram to see the videos and pictures.
