lion and tiger cam - feeding station at big cat rescue sanctuary

Lions vs. Tigers

In the wild, tigers are apex predators and are known to hunt wild pigs, deer, buffalo, elephants, goats, antelope, leopards, crocodiles, monkeys and rabbits. Because of habitat loss, old and sick tigers have been known to occasionally kill humans.

Tigers rely mainly on sight and hearing while hunting. They are master ambushers, and can sneak up behind their prey in complete silence, and then pounce upon and kill the unsuspecting animal with one bite to the neck.

Unlike tigers, lions hunt in groups called prides. The most common prey are cape buffalo, wildebeests, antelope and zebras but are also known to occasionally kill giraffes and elephants. One wild lion typically kills about 12 - 15 large animals in a year, but about 50% of their diet comes from scavenging. Watch the live lion cam to discover the eating habits of lions.

Both lions and tigers have massive canine teeth towards the front of their jaw. The canines help these large cats grab their prey and wound it. Sharp teeth in the middle of the jaw, called premolars, are used to tear meat off the bone. Watch the live webcam to see these magnificent animals feeding up close.

This feeding station is attached to a 2.5 acre enclosure called the Vacation Rotation. Each lion and tiger gets a two week vacation out in the big play area and this cam shows where they’re fed. Tune in regularly to see different cats dining.

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, advocates for ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. This refuge is home to over 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, and other species who have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, or retired from performing acts. Our new series of live cams brings us into their world as they live, play, and heal through rehabilitation.
