5 Ways Big Cats Are Just Like Small Cats

Science will tell you the only real difference between the earth's species of cats is their size. Let's take a closer look at that, with wonderful footage of leopards in the wild doing the things all house cats do, in a clip from the BBC TV series Planet Earth 3.

However, size makes a big difference. Male leopards typically max out at around 100 pounds, but can reach 200 pounds. A leopard eats things like antelopes and warthogs, and needs between six and eight pounds of meat a day. Leopards are just as food-motivated as the typical house cat, so if your leopard doesn't get his daily allowance, well, you are about the right size prey to supplement that. (via Laughing Squid)

And also remember that if your cat was big enough, it would eat you.
