There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Maybe the difference is similar to today's mainland clouded leopard/sunda clouded leopard, chimpanzee/bonobo, eastern/western gorilla.

Central America pumas are small, probably the smaller ones of the species. In fact, when the jaguar is present, the puma is smaller, so in Central America where are the smaller jaguars, certainly here are also the smaller pumas, however as far I know, there are no weights from pumas in this region.

Yea jaguars are the ultimate apex predators in central and South America . Also here’s another good question wouldn’t the african lioness genes limit the growth of the cave lion African lions size ? They limit African lions size and tiligers and tigons are smaller than ligers. So how would they play out i don’t know one the scientists said they would try to make the hybrid be as much like cave lions as possible maybe that counts for size too.

That picture is a depiction of blue babe and his killers that I found on Facebook. It’s very interesting.
