Tigers are the heaviest of the big-cats, but are heavily muscled

enough, to reach speeds capable of catching running deer in short

bursts. Tigers have been documented reaching speeds up to 32 mph in

a sprint. Normally, tigers do not need to run as fast as their

smaller cousins (lionesses 36mph, cheetahs 68mph) though. Their

camouflage, works with their wooded environment and provides them

with a close-quarter arena, where stealth enables them to get quite

close to their intended prey before revealing itself. Even a human

could catch up to a deer if they approach it within a close enough


A lion is a large tawny colored cat that lives in northwestern

India and Africa.
