Big Cat Blogging

For this weeks version of Friday cat blogging, we present you with the 'Big' cats. These are the far-flung relatives of our our normal subject for Friday cat blogging, Hodag. These members of the Felidae family are housed at the Audubon zoo, and we took these pictures during Swampfest (see previous post).

An Amur leopard. This type of leopard is one of the most endangered cat species in the world. The Audubon zoo has a breeding program for this species.

Rex and Zulu, the two white tiger brothers. Named after the Mardi Gras Krewes here in New Orleans. They weight 380 pounds each and are in absolutely fine form.

American Bobcats. Local here to Louisiana, this is the only true swamp cat left, since cougars have not been seen in many years.

Just in case anyone was intrested, here is how all of these big cats are related to Hodag.

I see you have the Genet, the Civet and the Lindsang in your evolutionary scheme. Wonderful.

I know they are so pink and beautiful!! I totally want a white tiger pet. It would probably eat hodag though and that would suck
