They both make a good sprint for their prey although leopards tend to stalk their prey a little more. They eat medium sized prey which is relatively smaller than prey of other big cats eat. The females are solitary in both species though cheetah males make a coalition, male leopards are also solitary. Leopards are the strongest big cat there is, they can drag their prey, which is sometimes bigger than the leopard is, up into trees for safekeeping and safe eating from other big predators. They are also the fastest climbers of all the big cats.
Their eating preferences are :deers, coati, peccaries, armadillo, capybaras, birds, small mammals and even snakes.Occasionally their diet would also include fish or large river turtles.

They have similar behavioural characteristics and habitats as tigers (they roam around rivers). Panthera pardus (leopards) do not however live in Latin America, this species can only be found in parts of Africa (e.g. :sub-Saharan part) , tropical, South and West Asia or Siberia .
Their claws are long and retractable being up to 3.9 inches in length. They are also some of the most endangered. There is only an estimated 400 to 500 Siberian (or Amur) tigers in the wild today. When it comes to their habitats,siberian tigers are solitary animals, marking their scent on trees to keep other tigers away. Siberian tigers live primarily in eastern Russia's birch forests, though some exist in China and North Korea.
They share many habitats with the Jaguar Panthera onca. The Eastern Cougar is a carnivore (tertiary), and feeds on many different types of organisms. D) Ecological Importance: They are the top predators in their ecosystems. 2 They aid in controlling populations of large hoofed mammals. 2 Without cougars, herbivores, such as deer, reproduce at a fast and high rate and pose a threat of consuming all vegetation, which would then drive out oth... ... middle of paper ... ...avioral adaptations that helps them in survival.
Their preys ranges from insects to giraffes; but they prefer large animals such as zebras and wildebeast.

There are several varieties of wild primate species living in remote areas away from humans. Mountain Gorillas Smaller primates often climb in trees to find foods such as nuts, berries and seeds. There are species of primates including gibbons that seldom touch the ground but travel from tree to tree with their long arms while holding on branches. Mountain gorillas frequently weigh hundreds of pounds and are unable to climb trees.
