|Two lions (Panthera leo)|
Panthera is a genus of the family Felidae. It has four living species, which are the biggest cats of the Felidae family. All cats in this genus can climb trees. The cheetah is not in this group because it is more closely related to the small cats. The cheetah is also different from all other cats because it has only slightly retractable claws and chases down its prey instead of stalking it, like all other cats do. The tiger is the largest Panthera species, as well as the largest of all cats. The leopard is the smallest Panthera species.
