This group includes animals that belong to the cat family, such as tiger, lion, and leopard, which might appear as a white panther or black panther. It is only the animals that belong to this genus that can roar. They believe in having evolved since about six to ten million years ago, with tiger being the earliest members to exist. This tiger is also the largest of the genus, with lion coming in as the second largest.
The leopard and jaguar have spots on their body, with jaguar being the strongest of all the genus.
