The tiger’s tongue is covered with numerous small, sharp, rear-facing projections called papillae. These papillae gives the tongue it’s rough, rasping texture and is designed to help strip feathers, fur and meat from prey!

The lion prefers to live in open woodlands and thick bush, scrub, and tall grassy areas. The lion can and will tolerate a wide variety of habitats, absent only from rain forests and desert interiors. While lions drink water regularly when it is available, they can survive by obtaining their moisture requirements from their prey or from tsama melons. This allows them to survive in very arid climates.

Tigers Set to Remain at Tiger Temple. Here’s Why the Fight for Their Freedom is Not Over

http://bit.ly/1QVG5fZ
<p>Thai authorities have retracted their decision to seize all 147 tigers from the Tiger Temple. Instead, the tigers will be allowed to remain at the temple on the condition that the temple is not run as a business and the temple does not continue breeding tigers.</p>

Poor Ariel! A pity that dog could not have just left her with her bobcat family. Too bad the dog's owners didn't think, "I'd better call the department of wildlife, because wildcats belong in the wild."

The lion was once found from northern Africa through southwest Asia (extinct in most countries within past 150 years), west into Europe (extinct 2000 years ago) and east into India (relic population of 350 in Gir Forest only). Today, the majority of Africa’s lions can be found in east and southern Africa, with about 1,500 in West Africa. Most of the lions today exist inside protected areas. 2007 surveys estimate only 15,000 lions to be left in the wild and most of those are on game parks where they are hunted as trophies.

Be a Big Cat Friendly Tourist!

Did you know that big cats and cubs are exploited and even abused at tourist attractions here in the U.S. and in dozens of countries around the world?
What can you do to make sure you don't unwittingly participate in tourist activities that exploit big cats and other wild animals?

Easy ways YOU and your family can be responsible tourists:

• Never pay to touch or have your photo taken with a tiger or lion cub
• Don’t attend circuses, fairs, or attractions that feature wild animal shows
• Don’t purchase items made from wild animals, such as furs and rugs
• Don’t partake in local “delicacies” made from wild animals, such as tiger bone wine
• Only visit sanctuaries that are accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (http://bit.ly/1NqZT8n).

Website - http://bit.ly/1NqZT8o provides more information about tiger cub petting and allows visitors to sign up for notifications on big cat issues.

After a gestation of approximately 73 days, Serval females produce a litter of 1-5 kittens, with 2 being the average. They weigh in at around 8.5-9 ounces at birth, and it will take 9-12 days until their eyes open.

They begin to take solid foods around the age of 3 weeks, and are independent between 6-8 months, but may remain in their natal ranges.

They attain sexual maturity between 18-24 months, and it is at this time that they will be forced out of their mother’s territory.
