Big Cats Of India by Nachiket Utpat
CATS.....scientifically grouped under the family Felidae, have always manage to grab our eyeballs as humans. It is their sheer grace of movements, precarious stealth when they stalk and a royal demeanor of their presence which could be touted to be the reasons for it. Yet for a common man it is a cuddly little purring domesticated animal as opposed to the fact that they are actually classified into about 40 different species genetically displaying a great diversity in their sizes and just one of them is the regularly encountered House Cat.
However in any order of animals when it comes to reputation, size does matter and that’s precisely why the Big Cats, as they are informally referred to, stand out in the Cat Family. In general the group includes Tiger, Lion, Jaguar, Leopard and sometimes the Snow Leopard too, but a more expansive version may also include the Clouded Leopard, the Puma and the Cheetah. However the latter are not true Big Cats due to their inability to roar. The Snow Leopard although cannot roar, genetically belongs to the same genus as the other big cats and hence is a part of this family. India is blessed to house 4 out of these 5 or 3 out of the 4, if one excludes the Snow Leopard owing to its inability to roar, Big Cat species. Whatever the case, our rich biodiversity and geographical distribution of prey species makes it possible for the Tiger, the Lion, the Leopard and the Snow Leopard to survive in our country with just the Jaguar missing from this list as its only found on the South American continent.
