Tigers and snow leopards, but I also like jaguars a lot. Well, I like all wild cats.

Same here, but I consider jaguars and tigers the "same".
I ran out of snarky remarks, unfortunately.

I adore Snow Leopards. They're probably my favorite big cat.

My fav wild cat is definitely king cheetah.
Their fur has a rare mutation for cream-coloured fur marked with large, blotchy spots and three dark, wide stripes extending from their neck to the tail, and that's the main thing i LOVE about them C:

I have loved cheetahs ever since I was young. Getting to watch them come out into their enclosure every day has definitely rekindled that. :)

tigers and lions are definitely my favorites. my love for lions bloomed at a very early age, when i was honestly obsessed with the lion king. i would watch that movie religiously -- i'd probably end up rewinding my tape like two or three times a day. i'd reenact everything in that movie (lowkey i know like every line in tlk ok that's how bad it is) and it'd be the best thing ever; it was definitely a favorite pass-time of mine.

my love for tigers grew around five years ago. i watched a documentary on a family of tigers, then that bulldozed into me watching whatever documentaries i could get my hands on + reading extensively on tigers + crying over their beauty ok. it's gotten to the point where i just really want to have a tiger tattoo because i just... lov. i lov them so much.

but lowkey i think i might get a tattoo of a tiger + lion meshed together. you know, something like this LIKE CAN U IMAGINE HOW LIT THAT WOULD BE

I'm really charmed by any member of the felidae family, but I think if I had to single one out as a favourite it'd be the jaguar. Something about them really fascinates me; it's probably the complete image of this gorgeous, muscular, silent, solitary predator. They are incredibly strong as well; apparently they bite through the skull of their prey in order to kill by getting to the brain. (Allow me to use this opportunity to drop some footage of a jaguar successfully preying on a caiman as well... certainly demonstrates their strength).

Oh wow, that's really impressive. Here is something quite similar to that, allow me to use this opportunity to drop some footage of a tiger attacking a crocodile

Honestly? I really like any kind of wild cat, they're all beautiful. My favorite has to be the serval or caracal though. Servals are so tall and graceful, and have you heard their meows? Precious! Caracals are also really adorable, and I love their little ear tufts. I also like the pallas cat, they look really goofy and cute.
Let me explain
This ugliness, this cruelty, this repulsiveness
It will all die out
And now, I cry for all that is beautiful
