Tiger

Tigers are one of the highest-jumping mammals, perhaps second only to the puma.

In the wild, tigers are one of the highest-jumping mammals, perhaps second only to the puma (Puma concolor).

The tiger’s forelimbs, massive and heavily muscled, are used to hold tightly onto the prey and to avoid being dislodged, especially by large prey such as gaurs (Bos gaurus). A single tremendous blow of the paw can kill a full-grown wolf.
