Grizzly Bear VS Silverback Gorrila - Page 5

post #61 of 188
The leopard is the smallest of the four big cats. In the Americas, the jaguar is the largest Panthera. Adjusted for weight, its jaws are the strongest of the felids. Unlike most cats, jaguars kill its prey by biting the skull and piercing the brain. This may give the jaguar an advantage over the tiger against the bear.

Most importantly, jaguars are just really, really cool.

Not just the largest but the only member of the genus surviving in the Americas.

Certainly the most dangerous by far of the big cats to work with as a trainer. A family friend of mine who is a professional animal trainer was almost killed by jaguar she had reared from a cub. For many years the L.A. Zoo displayed a jaguar that had killed a woman keeper at another zoo.

They seem to be coming back across the border with more frequency. It would be really neat, I think, if a breeding population of jaguars could re-establish itself in the Southwest.

I visited the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound a few times growing up, out in the desert in Southern California. They gave their jaguars bowling balls to play with, said they lasted a few weeks before they had to be replaced. They displayed some of the "used" bowling balls--cracks everywhere, holes, completely demolished. I wonder what they give captive Grizzlies to play with?

I love wild cats. But the cheetahs at the National Zoo are ghetto bitches. Laying around all day, getting their nails did, and their weaves sewn in.

Although big cats are tough, I still don't think they compare in a battle of strength to any of the original poll animals

I am inclined to think that an adult male lion or tiger could take down a silverback gorilla without too much difficulty. Leopards are known to prey on gorillas but I don't know if they dare tackle the big males.

There was an incident at a zoo many years ago (Philadelphia, I think) in which, through a keeper error while cleaning cages, a 400-pound gorilla and black leopard were caged together. Despite being much stronger, the poor gorilla panicked and was killed by the leopard. As I recall, the leopard tore off his arm. I got this story from the late Jack Lott and can't vouch for its authenticity.

This makes me rethink my idea of replacing the Eagles' defensive line with gorillas.

I wonder what will happen if they gave them balls of yarn.

They would knit Jaguar-neck sweaters.
