Wild Cats[edit]

Wild Cats are large predatory animals found in various regions throughout the world. While in many ways resembling common housecats, these big creatures are not normally friendly to other animals of any type; seeing them as a food source. These large cats use stealth to approach their prey and then attempt to bring them down as quick as possible, going for what appears to be the least defended, or weakest, of a group. Failure to do so within a few attacks causes them to retreat to a safe distance, only to stalk the weakened foe until a new attack opportunity arises.

Cheetah[edit]

Cheetahs are swift feline predators of the plains. A cheetah is 3 to 5 feet long and weighs 110 to 130 pounds.

Cheetah Tactics[edit]

Cheetahs make sudden sprints to bring down prey.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Male cheetahs are very sociable and will group together for life, usually with their brothers in the same litter; although if a cub is the only male in the litter then two or three lone males may group up, or a lone male may join an existing group. Females always hunt alone, although cubs will accompany their mothers to learn to hunt once they reach the age of five to six weeks.

Leopard[edit]

These jungle cats are about 4 feet long and weigh about 120 pounds. By altering appearance and locale these statistics can be used to describe Jaguars, Panthers, or Cougars as well.

Leopards usually hunt at night, and always attempt to Pounce (from a tree, or ledge) on a target when they first attack.

Lion Tactics[edit]

Lions are powerful animals who usually hunt in coordinated groups and stalk their chosen prey.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Lions are predatory carnivores living in groups, called prides. The pride usually consists of approximately five or six related females, their cubs of both sexes, and one or two males known as a coalition who mate with the adult females (although extremely large prides, consisting of up to 30 individuals, have been observed). The coalition of males associated with a pride are usually two, but may increase to four and decrease again over time. Male cubs are excluded from their maternal pride when they reach maturity.

Tiger[edit]

These great cats stand more then 3 feet tall at the shoulder and are about 9 feet long. They weigh from 400 to 600 pounds.

Tiger Tactics[edit]

Encounter Groups[edit]

Tigers are solitary animals, and are fiercely territorial.
