Big Cats From Around the World

I don't know about you, but we find that we can get sucked into adorable animal videos online and completely lose track of time.  Fortunately, much of the content out in cyberspace is educational, including ours!  We are thrilled that our growing Facebook community is starting to speak out and tell us what they want to learn more about.  In our new video slideshow series about wild animals, we will be highlighting some of the incredible creatures that Suzi has photographed throughout her career as a wildlife photographer.   
Our first video, dedicated to Michael and Elizabeth, 2nd grade twins in Northern California, is about Big Cats from around the world.  We focused on Tigers, Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs and Mountain Lions.

Tigers live on the continent of Asia in a variety of habitats such as rainforests, grasslands, savannas and even mangrove swamps.  Their numbers are in decline because of the growth of human populations and expanding human activity.  Sadly, tigers are often poached because some cultures want to use their body parts for medicine.

Cheetahs are Africa's most endangered big cat.  You'd hope that being the fastest land animal might help them, but sadly, speed can not protect these animals from habitat loss.  For thousands of years, cheetahs were kept as companion animals by royalty, and to this day, there is still high demand for cheetahs as pets.  Unfortunately, they do not breed well in captivity, so many are captured in the wild in order to fuel this illegal trade.

Lions are the most social of the big cats, living in prides of up to 30 animals.  Females do most of the hunting, and males protect the pride and defend its territory.  Like all other wildlife, they are impacted by habitat loss.

There are as many animal sounds as there are types of animals. Some are familiar, such a the bark of a dog or the meow of a cat. But have you ever heard a wild animal?  Sounds are varied, depending on the purpose and even on the size of the animal doing the "talking."
