Big cat

The term big cat— which is not a biological classification — is used informally to distinguish the larger felid species from smaller ones. One definition of “big cat” includes the four members of the genus Panthera: the tiger, lion, jaguar, and leopard. Members of this genus are the only cats able to roar. A more expansive definition of “big cat” also includes the cougar, cheetah, snow leopard, and clouded leopard.
